--- Comment #1 from Andrej Kacian <andrej at kacian.sk> ---
Claws Mail by default is separating configuration from mailboxes (which could
be also accessed by other applications, since they're in an open MH format).
Therefore you can delete whe Claws-mail folder, recreate new configuration, and
just add the mail folder without losing any messages.

That is intentional, and it is not likely to change anytime soon.

You can, of course, move your mail folder into the Claws-mail folder if you
want. Unfortunately, in current Windows release, there is a bug where you can't
just enter an absolute path ("c:\Users\...") into File->Add mailbox->MH dialog,
so you'll have to carefully edit folderlist.xml in the config folder instead,
but normally, you should be able to do this:

- Remove the MH mailbox from Claws Mail (it remains on disk).
- Move it wherever you want on disk
- Add it back via File->Add mailbox->MH, using full path.

The bugfix has already been made, and above will be possible in the next
