No, in the GUI of Claws the whole IMAP account is just gone. 
As already said: I find data about this account in the folders cert, imapcache and
tagsdb, but not in the files accountrc, folderitemrc and folderlist.xml
Obviously, what is not in folderlist cannot be shown. But i still have
the account's folders in imapcache. I set up this mailbox a few days
ago and didn't look up many emails. But the three of them that i did
look up are in the account's inbox folder in imapcache.
