I’ve previously seen mention on the mailing list here that you can use 
the following command to prevent the display of multiple messages when 

     defaults write com.freron.MailMate MmMaximumMessagesDisplayed 
-integer 1

 From a quick try, it seems that with this applied, you just get an 
empty preview pane if you select more than one message. Given it seems 
to be an integer setting, you could potentially experiment with larger 
values than 1 to see if there’s a good compromise between usefulness 
and performance.
