Dragging produces `.eml` files (raw RFCx822 emails equivalent to what is
store don the IMAP server). These are indexed by Spotlight (using a
plugin included with MailMate). The “Command ▸ Export” adds emails
to an `.mbox` file using the `formail` command. The filename is based on
the IMAP folder path.

Appends the selected emails to a `.mbox` file within the selected export
folder (by default this is `~/Desktop/MailMate Export`). The name of the
`.mbox` file is based on the IMAP mailbox path of the selected emails
(this might be multiple files).
