Yes, many more. The actions are how the GUI (Cocoa) works internally. 
The question is which of these I choose to expose, i.e., which ones I do 
not expect to change (or rename) in the future. Almost every menu item 
has a corresponding action. I've added `send:`, but the homepage manual 
is not updated yet.

That one is a good example of one that I'm not too happy about. It's not 
as well-defined what it does as I would like. Also, it should be 
unnecessary in most cases. Messages arriving in the INBOX are detected 
using IMAP IDLE. The server (or MailMate) is buggy if checking manually 
is faster.

These I could add to the list:

Does not exist.

This one I could also add to the list:


It shows the entire raw message.

Maybe I should just grep all actions in the code and review them 
one-by-one for inclusion in the list. If I have time for it I'll do it 
in the weekend (soon going on vacation).

The `toggleRawSource:` menu item (Show Raw Message) has the same 
shortcut as Apple Mail: ⌥⌘U.
