Really? Last time I tried claws out, it didn't even have a
multithreaded interface, and hung there while trying to connect to the
mail server. And since I was trying to use the account the first time
over IMAP, I didn't see any folders, and couldn't find the place where
to subscribe to them...

It was rather painful. But granted, I haven't looked at claws in some
time, so things might very well have changed.
