Yes, you can. If you have an MH mailbox then you should copy this,
(default is ~/Mail), and you should also copy ~/.claws-mail/. See
`man claws-mail` for descriptions of what it contains.

Be mindful about preserving permissions and ownership, i.e. do it.

Easiest way is probably creating tarballs.
