Anyone Tried CLAWS?


For the email function only.

This past month I signed up my only goal was to get as an email. So the web site tells you if you are using a linux platform to install Thunderbird, pgp, and enigma.

OK find I did that, and it works. Cool.

But in the back of my mind since I had been using Claws with my former email, would Claws also have worked with pgp and enigma add-ons in

I was rather fond of Claws ability to file your messages in folders with Control-O. In Thunderbird, if you want to file a message in a subfolder, you have to drag and drop. (If there is a keyboard shortcut in T-bird for filing I haven’t found it.)


ctrl-shift-M if repeatedly filing to the same folder?


I’ve not used CLAWS, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work as you describe. Give it a try? Adding another mail client to your system won’t hurt anything.

I’m personally becoming a fan of the “Evolution” mail client.


Good, maybe you are a fan of this as well?

GNOME Evolution through 3.28.2 is prone to OpenPGP signatures being spoofed for arbitrary messages using a specially crafted email that contains a valid signature from the entity to be impersonated as an attachment.


Was not aware of that particular CVE so thanks for the heads up. Currently on 3.30.


Does not appear to work. I tried:


(In case case mattered).

Maybe there is an add-on for filing functions?

In Claws with Ctrl-o you get a pop up windown and get to choose a folder. Works with a selection of multiple messages also.


Just woke up. Thanks for all the replies.

Yes I may give Claws an attempt this weekend when I have time to reconfigure stuff. (This is begging another question. Will do a new one, complete with grammar and a question mark for the pedantic among us.

Now I have to go to work (8 hours), then after that an old D&D game (4-5 hours)

Saturday I’ll have a boardgame using S&Ts Starforce “Alpha Centauri” from 1974. (6 hours)

Sunday, reboot the mainframe and then turn on Critical Item Update to a database (1 hour). Then Father’s day festivities.

My weekend is almost fully booked.


In the Message menu, Move to “xxx” Again where xxx is a mail folder name. On my Thunderbird, the menu shows the above suggested shortcut key next to the menu item.

I would suppose that in order for it to work a) you have to have most recently moved a mail message to folder xxx and b) you have to have a mail message selected.

I only have two Add-Ons installed and I don’t think either is relevant.


On the subject line.


I just configured CLAWS, it works just fine. (Not worried about enigma.)
