Interesting. Where is the execute icon?

Yes. That definitely sounds more like what I'm used to and what I'm

Maybe. I may have to use the PPA to grab a more recent version since
Ubuntu MATE LTS considers this one to be up-to-date.

I doubt it. That hasn't changed and there's nothing unusual in my
set-up. I've got the default folders and one additional parent folder
with about 230 child folders, none of which have child folders in
them. All messages are in the default or child folders, and none are
stored directly in the parent folder.

Until you chimed in, it had occurred to me that Linux Mint (my
previous operating system) may have intervened in some way and
enhanced the Claws Mail features, but now it's looking more like a
version issue, which means the PPA might solve this completely.
