Sorry, there is currently no way to do that.

Yes, MailMate uses a heuristic based on the currently selected message 
(or the currently selected mailbox). The next update of MailMate is a 
bit better when replying to messages, but for new messages it is still 
the same. I'll think about how this can be improved.

For the record, the next update of MailMate has a debug variable which 
provides a bit of additional information (in the console) when deriving 
the identity used for replies or new messages:

	defaults write com.freron.mailmate MmDebugDerivedIdentity -bool yes
