I doubt Claws or any mail user agent can provide the same functionality of all 
KDE [1] software products people are currently using.
Might be able to replace KMail, but I have my doubts on whether they would be 
able to work as a desktop shell, a document viewer, file manager, browser, 
calendar, text editor, etc.


[1] assuming for a moment that you accidentally used the vendor name to refer 
to all software products of said vendor
