How I can get newer Thunderbird for Raspberry Pi?

I know its name is Icedove on Debian and I can install it with apt-get install icedove but its available version of it on Raspbian repositories currently (1/14/2013) is 10.0.11 while Thunderbird official version is 17.0.2 now.

How I can have a newer (> 15) version? (without compiling Thunderbird on Raspberry Pi!)

I installed it from here and it works. – Ben Simmons Jun 6 at 17:12

Recent versions of Thunderbird seem to be quite heavy-wight for the Pi, maybe that's the reason there are no up-to-date builds. Claws might be a good alternative for you: apt-get update && apt-get install claws-mail
