FYI, I am on Windows 7 professional with Claws 3.10.1 and I am able to
paste Arabic characters into messages and send/receive those messages.
I just sent a test message from claws to my gmail account and was able
to read the Arabic characters in gmail.

I know this is obvious, but worth quickly asking - did you check the
far right-hand side of the window?  (Entering from LTR character sets
will sometimes switch the current line to be right-justified instead
of left-justified.)
