Thanks for the log. This is the problem:

	19:20:43 C: I6 APPEND "Archive Test" (\Seen) "21-Aug-2015 15:43:47 
-0500" {42430418}

MailMate tries to upload a large message and the Exchange server cannot 
handle it. The `"BAD"` response is incorrect, but as I noted Exchange 
IMAP returns `"BAD"` for any type of problem. Select the mailbox and 
enable the Size column to help you locate it (View ▸ Columns). You 
need to delete it permanently to make it work. You can drag it out of 
MailMate first if you still need the message. Then hold down ⌥ and 
select “Message ▸ Delete Now”.

Since you had issues with multiple mailboxes then you might have 
multiple large messages.
