  That's "Claws Mail for dummies", which hasn't been written yet (probably
  because some publishing company would try to sue you), but you're free to
  start one. Anyway we've never considered Claws Mail users dummies.

  More seriously, can you point examples of that poundings in the Claws
  Manual? Or is just a general appreciation thrown for the sake of arguing?

  Because, even if written in prose and not as a collection of bullet lists,
  we've been trying to make it pretty understandable for people.
