Use your file manager to copy the mailbox directory to the new location.
In Claws Mail use /File/Add Mailbox/... to add the new mailbox location;
remove the old mailbox with the 'Remove mailbox' context menu on the
top-level folder. Then, when you are satisfied that everything is as it
should be, use your file manager to remove the original mailbox directory.
