Claws Mail does not destroy emails. You're safe. The
updating/rewriting of Claws' config files is a totally different
matter from mail files.

Let me clarify, the ext4 known issues are not in relation to Claws
Mail, but are in relation to any data on an ext4 filesystem. It's not
a Claws+ext4 issue, it's just an ext4 issue.

It isn't worth a nickel to two guys like you or me, 
but to a collector it is worth a fortune
