The 'Drafts' folder was empty, so I copied 2 files into that. I can
view them okay in Claws. Hopefully there is nothing internal that can
be corrupted ? The 3 hidden files seem to have been updated.

There is another 56 emails, all in one folder and all of the Claws
format. Will it be okay to copy the rest into 'Drafts' without
corrupting anything within Claws ?
