This requires a so-called bundle which is (unfortunately) still 
undocumented. There are a lot of [examples](https://github.com/mailmate) 
though. They can be enabled in the Bundles preferences pane of MailMate. 
Some of the calendar bundles use `MM_SELECTED_RANGE` which might be 
useful for the extra points (although I'm not sure this variable always 
works well in general).

You can base your bundle on an existing one. Place it here and MailMate 
should automatically detect it:

	~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/Bundles/

Make sure you replace every use of a UUID in the various files. You can 
put one on the pasteboard like this (in a Terminal window):

	uuidgen | tr -d '\n' | pbcopy

See if you can make it work and then let me know if you have any
