[MlMt] Three questions: signature on new email (doesn't work?), quick filters (/a la/ Thunderbird), filter order

I have just moved from Thunderbird to MailMate, after experiencing 
issues with reliability in Thunderbird. So far, my experience with 
MailMate has been great, and I have purchased a license for it.

However, I am still suffering three niggles …

    1) signature on new emails: one thing I liked about Thunderbird was 
that it could auto-insert a signature only to new emails; indeed 
MailMate claims to support this by:

> defaults write com.freron.MailMate MmDynamicSignatureMethod -string 
> messageType

    however, this really doesn’t work for me at all — I still have 
to manually insert my signature (which is a bit annoying). Any 

    2) Is there anyway to do “quick filtering” of an inbox like in 
Thunderbird, where it filters (quickly) based only on the subject? I 
guess I could type in “subject:<query>” every time, but that’s 
also not terrible efficient

    3) Order of results: I have my inbox ordered such that the most 
recent emails should appear at the top, and my sent items in the other 
way (not sure why); however when I search for things, MailMate seems to 
arbitrarily chose an order to sort the results (worse: if I searching my 
inbox, it sorts it in the sent items order!) — does anyone else see
