I didn't know that.

I don't think holding down ⌥ is a good solution for MailMate, but 
maybe it could be a toggle-shortcut which enables/disables the blue 
color used in Contacts. I'm not sure how to name such a feature though: 
“View ▸ Emphasize Related Mailboxes” ?

(Just thinking out loud -- not making any promises.)
