Sorry, I didn't think about that. It's more tricky than that. Only 
standard mailboxes have “easy” names. A smart mailbox has a UUID 
which you can find in the following plain text file:

	~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/Mailboxes.plist

A description of the variations of the mailbox identifier can be seen in 
the middle of this subsection in the manual: 

(These technical details would of course be hidden by the GUI if the 
preferences had a popup for selecting the mailbox used for completions.)
