Never mind, I finally found the mail. But the Inbox folder has only the
few messages received since the wipeout. It appears that the mail is
lost, unless Claws-Mail makes an automatic backup someplace. And yes, I
do back up my system, but the most recent backup probably has only
about half the mails that were in the Inbox.
