The default location in Windows 7 is 

AppData is a hidden folder, if not already done you will
need to change the file attributes in Windows 7  so that hidden
files/folders are visible.

To test I just 'made-up' a Mail2 folder and added it to Claws.
The full tree as well the included emails now are present in Claws
as "Mail2(MH)"

It will work just as well from any other location But you Must include
the full path when you add the mailbox.


p.s. I get list mail so there is no need to CC me
