I experience difficulties to configure xfce4-mailwatch-plugin. I use claws as email client - it seems to store mails in MH format, so it's is indeed possible to connect it with the plugin.

But I have no ~/mh_profile file, which is needed by xfce4-mailwatch-plugin to check my mail. I can't figure out what to put in this file in order to get the plugin to watch in my ~/Mail directory.

Thanks for any help you could give.

Actually it looks for a ~/.mh_profile file (notice the dot). Do you have that? –  landroni Feb 1 '14 at 22:35
