Good idea: “Edit ▸ Find ▸ Use as Default Search” ;-)

(I know, it is very hard to discover.)

I didn't know anyone dared to touch the specifiers.plist :-) Please 
share if you make something that would be useful for other users. I may 
change how it works in the future, but that is mostly related to where 
custom specifiers can be configured (it's a bit monolithic at the moment 
and it is possible to change/override specifiers which are important to 
MailMate, i.e., it can make MailMate crash and behave in strange ways).
