get the deb from Ubuntu and install it using 'gdebi', works swell.

From lenny it will work too, don't it ?

The only problem with using the Lenny packages 'icedove' is that
Debian will always try to upgrade it unless you lock the package, so I
use the ubuntu package 'mozilla-thunderbird' because it is not in the
Debian repos and Debian can't upgrade it, it still works swell and
solves a minor problem while doing upgrades. ;-)

Note: For those using Ubuntu, just do the opposite and install the version of 'icedove' it's not in the Ubuntu repos and will not
get upgraded, that also works swell too. ;-)

Yeah I kind of prefer tb2 over 3 & it would be cool if there was an official way of doing this, maybe a package called icedoveold or somat, but my preference isn't strong enough to muck about with unmaintained off repository .debs

Good luck to you tho.
