I have built the package and installed on my 770 with OS2007
hacker edition (I do not have a n800 ). It is possible that the
requirements are not exactly the same with a true n800.

Claws-mail is wrote by a developpers team and ported by me (and Colin
Leroy) to Maemo. Nokia did not do anything for that. If that does not
go, it is my fault.
But the question is why Nokia prefer write a new email client less
powerful (not usable in fact) whereas others already exist. I have
ported claws-mail to Maemo on 1 week. Nokia has developers more and
better than me. It would have ported it easily. But I do not know all,
there are perhaps other reasons.
