1. You must restart MailMate (I forgot to mention that).
2. Maybe you made a mistake when editing the file and it is no longer a 
valid property list (I'm afraid no error is sent to console in this 

For case number 2 you can use `plutil` to check the file. Just write the 
following in the Terminal:

	plutil headersFormatting.plist

For me, it replies:

	headersFormatting.plist: OK
