	Yes there is! And I have several recent backups ;) The problem
	is; because Claws isn't the built in client; I can't selectivly
	restore just the email files. Because the "other" backup
	category also lumps in; for ex; my GPE files which have been
	updated since the backup, which the restore would then wipe out
	my current GPE files.

	Essentially that's what I did. I've relegated myself to losing
	the emails, but I'd like to see if I can learn how to possibly
	retrieve them for the day when it's critical.
