we are talking of a version of claws-mail which is older than the
version shipping with Debian Stable, more precisely the version shipped
with Debian old-stable (aka Debian Wheezy), so this version does not
receive any more security fixes (for claws-mail) and properly not for a
number of other packages. The only sane advice to give here is to
advice OP to do a distribution upgrade.
