Thanks, it's nice to see it in use.

It would certainly be much easier when I have implemented two things:

* some way to run a command/script where the command can be given the 
identity of selected message(s)
* some way to retrieve information about messages based on their 

The first part is not implemented yet, but it is high-priority item.

The latter is implemented in an experimental state as an http server 
with a so-called RESTful service (described in the release notes only), 
but I'm going to make some changes to that interface, so you cannot 
really rely on it yet.

You could probably make something work using “Edit ▸ Copy as Link” 
and maybe “Message ▸ Show in Finder”. The command line program 
(`emate`) is not going to be useful. Think of it as a debug utility.

The easiest thing to do is probably to wait for me to implement the 
items noted above, but you are of course welcome to try and see how far 
you can get with the existing version of MailMate.
