thank you for your input, that has saved the day !

I would never have imagined that the Mail folder could be somewhere 
else but under /Claws-mail and some of the docs I have found do say 
so... In hindsight it's rather logical because the MH format could be 
read by other programs as well and therefore should not "belong" to 
CM in all cases.

Is there a way I can change the location where CM keeps the mail 
database, to another partition for example ? I had a look at the 
clawsrc config file but it does not seem to define the mail folder path.
