Yes, it is solution, but IMO bad. You have more options to solve it:

a) under XFCE is shortcut to drag window by any place with default
   (AFAIK - i don't use the default one) Left Alt + Left Mouse
b) you can use the wmctrl with the -e option to define new window
   position and size (get windows list by the -l option)
c) you can close CM and tweak the values under ~/.claws-mail/clawsrc


d) etc ;-)

Be sure to properly close CM at end of session, i have issues with this
and the CM is killed and then no new values are written into rc file.
