What I did with the same problem was edit the file "menurc" in
the .claws-mail directory.  This must be done while CM is not running
otherwise the edits get overwritten.  Search for "<Primary>w" and
modify it to "<Primary<>Alt>w".  They call it "Primary" instead of
"Control", don't know why.  The CtrlAlt-w shouldn't conflict with
anything else in CM.
