Thanks for trying MailMate. A quick Google search indicates that GMX 
(imap.gmx.de) really does not support the UIDPLUS extension [1]. Such 
servers are in the minority now [2], and it is currently *not* a 
priority to make MailMate work without it. Sorry. I hope even more 
servers are going to support UIDPLUS in the future -- at least it seems 
to be a standard part of the future of IMAP [3].
