So you want to share the local message cache between MailMate and other 

(I ask because I most often receive requests for allowing MailMate to 
store messages in local mailboxes, i.e., removing them from IMAP

Don't expect MailMate to support any of this. It is more likely that 
I'll introduce a mode in which MailMate does not keep a local copy of 
messages. This way you might be able to run a local IMAP server, use 
OfflineIMAP to sync to it, and then connect MailMate (and other clients) 
to IMAP on localhost. This is all theory and no work has been done in 
this area.
