If you copy them with a file manager or by command line to Drafts or any
other empty folder, nothing should get corrupted. After that you even
could copy them from the Draft or any other folder, to another folder
that isn't empty, that already contains an email with the same number,
since then it would become a number higher, than the email with the
already highest number, but you need to do this step from within Claws,
not by using a file manager or command line.
