    Does anyone know how to backup up Claws Mail settings?
    I mean which folders should be copied for ability to restore all settings in this mail client on new machine? (under Windows OS)

    Assuming Win 7:
    Users\Name\Appdata\Roaming\Claws-mail.
    Themes, plugins can be copied from Program Files install directory.

    Thanks!

    BTW. I've noticed that when installing claws mail from gpg4win installer then it freezes during opening signed or encrypted messeges.

    When I install clean Claws mail from website then it works like should but...
    if I previously installed gpg4win (without claws mail bulit in this installer) then Kleopatra doesn't work because claws mail has separate gpg core and kleopatra from gpg4win has another one so to run properly kleopatra I have to close all gpg processes started by claws mail and then I'm able to run Kleopatra... weird.

    OK, I think I have found solution.
    When you want install Kleopatra with Claws Mail installed (from separate installer not from gpg4win), then do not install GPA plugin from gpg4win.
