In theory, this should not be possible. MailMate should just beep 
because I never implemented cancellation of messages already in the 
process being sent. Obviously that fails to work somehow.

Ouch, even worse. Could you send me the following file off list. It 
might provide a hint:

	~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/database.log

Certainly not good. I would naturally like to figure out what is going 
on, but my attempts to reproduce this problem all failed.

I don't think I've fixed anything related to this, but just to be sure 
then you should update to the latest test version before trying again.

Thanks in advance.
