    As indicated in the Lenny (oldstable) release notes, security support for
    the Icedove packages in the oldstable needed to be stopped before the end
    of the regular Lenny security maintenance life cycle.
    You are strongly encouraged to upgrade to stable or switch to a different
    mail client.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.0.11-1+squeeze3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.1.11-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
