I think I should clarify a bit here. A `.mbox` file is not the same as a 
`.mailbox` *folder*. I think DevonThink simply scans the folder and 
finds the `.eml` files within it.

It is quite likely that it would work better if MailMate supported 
exporting to `.mbox` file(s).

(Also note, that it's not always safe to access the files stored by 
MailMate directly. It's a moving target if MailMate is active.)
