       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, and press the
       ‘‘Open’’ button.
