    Debian Bug     : 671408 671410
    
    The latest security update, DSA-2464-1, for Icedove, Debian's version
    of the Mozilla Thunderbird mail client, contained a regression: the
    removal of UTF-7 support resulted in incorrect display of IMAP folder
    names.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.0.11-1+squeeze10.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
