Will take that into account, thank you.

There is, however, something wrong here – or at least confusing
(in Notification plugin I mean): the "Hide when iconified" option only
does what it says when *closing* Claws Mail, assuming the "Close to
tray" option is set; this does not work while simply minimizing the
program, however (or I was not able to find the proper config
permutations to achieve that).

How can I hide the program when just minimize ? I mean something
similar to Sylpheed, where there is an option "Minimize to tray icon";
when I close then the program simply close, but when I minimize then
the program remains open while at the same time it disappears both from
task switch (Alt+Tab) and task bar.
