[MlMt] installing on 2nd computer

I think you can just install it and set it up with all the same settings 
and the same accounts. Your mail is not on your first computer (other 
than as copies). It's on the IMAP servers at your mail ISPs. If you 
install another copy of MailMate, it will download all the mail from the 
IMAP ISPs. It will not have any custom smart mailboxes that you made, 
unless you recreate them.

The two installations should not butt up against each other or have 
conflicts. You can install any number of different IMAP clients on any 
number of computers with no problem, since the canonical home for your 
email is in the cloud. That's how IMAP works and why it was developed.
