None of these conditions hold.  My signature file doesn't have any
newlines at the beginning.  I am not using any compose template, and my
reply template does not have any trailing newlines.  I am not using any
folder templates.

On further experimentation, I think Claws Mail is probably just adding
two newlines' worth of padding.  The third newline is added after the
signature separator (which is blank for me, since my signature file
already includes the standard separator).
