How do you know all mail is gone if you're not able to start Claws?
Probably it is still there.

Probably this would work...

Have a look in ~/.claws-mail for any files ending in .bak, then
make a copy of each, removing the .bak suffix. e.g.
`cp folderlist.xml.bak folderlist.xml`. Then restart Claws and
hopefully all will be good again.

It isn't worth a nickel to two guys like you or me,
