With `export` (and `import`) Bill means arguments to the `defaults`
command. Curiously, these are not documented in the man page of
`defaults`, but they are listed if you, e.g., run the `defaults` command
without any arguments:
To be more specific, something like this should work:
defaults export com.freron.MailMate ~/Desktop/MyMailMatePrefs.plist
And then on the new machine:
defaults import com.freron.MailMate ~/Desktop/MyMailMatePrefs.plist
(I haven't actually tried the above.)
As noted before, I think simply copying the file should work if you
haven't yet launched MailMate on the new machine.

Do it before launching MailMate. If you fail to do that then you can
just delete the contents of the folder first.
