claws-mail.exe does understand commandline parameters, but lot of them
do not work on Windows at the moment. "--help" is one of them, sorry.

Probably the best solution would be to stop doing our own commandline
parsing, and hook into Glib's parser[1], but so far, nobody has devoted
their time to that. I don't think it has even been discussed on the
team, since it brings very little to the table for Unix version.
