What's I'd do there, is from Claws-Mail, create a new folder, move all
messages in trash (if any) to that folder. Now leave Claws-Mail,
proceed to `restore`. Open Claws-Mail back, 'check for new messages' as
said by Paul to get the restored messages up, then move all messages
from the "new folder" back to Trash. Eventually 'Tools/Delete
duplicated messages'. That's a way to get your old trash w/ any new
trashed messages merged.
