I'm not aware of a dbus command for it -- that doesn't mean it doesn't
exist, I just never looked for it, but there's definitely a scripted
solution possible, as claws, like many mh-format mail clients, is
designed with exactly that sort of scripted extensibility in mind.
There's one way that I know for sure of, because I used it after I ran
the import script as described in an earlier post. But that's not ideal
for this particular situation, which as I said I've never looked into, so
I'd rather go looking and give you a better answer later, than to give
you this suboptimal solution now.
But as I said, I know it's possible, both because claws was designed for
precisely this sort of extensibility and because I happen to know an
indirect way of doing it already, based on what I have done.
