My bad, replied without reading what others has suggested you.

Can you set the following environment variables in your shell
configuration file:

export LC_ALL=
export LC_COLLATE="C"

Does claws has some configuration file where you can explicitly set
the charset ? In mutt there are **send_charset** and **charset**
variables that let you specify the charset.
