Yes. The notification plugin normally puts an icon is the System Tray
which alters when there are unread messages.

I ran this from a terminal, unloaded the plugin then got this when I
loaded it again:
notification_core.c:332:Notification Plugin: Hash table created
notification_hotkeys.c:105:Notification plugin: Updating keybindings..
notification_hotkeys.c:115:Notification plugin: Unbinding all
keybindings.. notification_hotkeys.c:105:Notification plugin: Updating
keybindings.. notification_hotkeys.c:115:Notification plugin: Unbinding
all keybindings.. notification_plugin.c:357:Notification plugin loaded
plugin.c:525:Plugin Notification (from
file /usr/lib64/claws-mail/plugins/notification.so) loaded
plugin_load /usr/lib64/claws-mail/plugins/notification.so: 0s044ms
This seems to have worked. Given that the notification icon was
appearing until it didn't I doubt that it's an installation issue.

I installed Claws-Mail many moons ago from a SuSE repository. I
restarted it because I rebooted my PC!

How do I find where Yast has installed Claws-Mail? I used to know how
to do this sort of thing, but these days I just run things and get on
with my life. I use Linux so that I can look under the hood if things
go wrong, but nowadays they so seldom do,
All the best,
