In the meantime I have found out that my script actually triggers, but
that MailMate does not play any sounds whatsoever on my system. Could be
a configuration issue on my end, so I will look into it.
Playing sounds is only a way to get to know the scripting, and not an
end in itself. What I would like to do, is to check for new messages
that contain a given subject and then pass on the body of the message to
a script that parses it to create OmniFocus tasks based on the body
This leads me to two further questions. Will it be possible to have a
script trigger on the receipt of new messages and pass the subject and
body on to a shell script?
In the examples, the script tag always contains an inline script. Is it
possible to call a script external to mailmate?

Anyway, thanks very much for your help, it is much appreciated.
