Experimental is used for packages which are still being developed, and
with a high risk of breaking your system. It's used by developers who'd
like to study and test bleeding edge software. Users shouldn't be using
packages from here, because they can be dangerous and harmful even for
the most experienced people.

Icedove from experimental?
Do you see problems?

I know how to install from experimental, but it can break your system.
It would be nice to know why it is in experimental.

But as I said, it's not a good idea for normal users, because they need
security support.
