Huh and i had exactly the same question yesterday, but wouldn't ask.

But now i just found http://www.claws-mail.org/faq/index.php/Actions -> Examples -> Save attachments and it seems to be what you are asking for.

Claws actions basically work e.g. like piping the mail file "| your_script" or using %F like in the example. You can apply that action on all mails with attachment by sorting after attachment column and then mark these all; or use the 'ha' extendet search. Then right-click -> actions. 
With 3000 mails still could be calling for trouble, so good luck  (x

* With IMAP, you probably need to have all mails fully download of course.
