How to set the default directory in Claws Mail

My first customization is to change the default directory used to store the messages. I couldn't find this in the documentation, but found the solution after Googling. The solution is: edit the path in your ~/.claws-mail/folderlist.xml file. Now to figure out how to show new message notifications in my wmii status bar!
