claws-mail-geolocation-plugin — Geographic location plugin.
This manual page documents briefly the claws-mail-geolocation-plugin.
This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the
original program does not have a manual page.
claws-mail-geolocation-plugin is a plugin (loadable module) for the
Claws Mail mailer.
This plugin allows to deduce the geographical location of email
senders, and shows it in a map on the message window.
Notice that inferring geographical location from mail headers is by
nature inaccurate, and some servers, mainly mail list servers, are
known to mangle message headers. Mails comming from them will appear
located at the mail list server position and not at sender’s position.
In case of doubt do not rely on the results shown by this plugin.
Before using a plugin you must instruct Claws Mail to load it on
For this you must go ‘‘Configuration’’ menu on main window toolbar,
open ‘‘Plugins...’’ dialog, click on the ‘‘Load plugin...’’ button and
select the plugin file, named geolocation_plugin.so, and press the
claws-mail (1), claws-mail-extra-plugins (1).
