First you need to upgrade to the latest release, 3.11.1.

Then you need to edit ~/.claws-mail/accountrc manually, in your
favourite text editor, while Claws Mail is not running.

For each account block you need to edit these 2 options to read thus,
(or as you require):


Note that if you haven't run version 3.11.1 at least once, these
account options will not be present in accountrc. So either start
3.11.1 once and quit it before editing the file, or just add these
options before running 3.11.1.
