This is also one of the main reasons MailMate does not support local
mailboxes. It makes it more likely that a user is faced by data loss in
case a MailMate bug destroys the database. This risk makes me nervous :)
*If* local mailboxes return to MailMate some day then it'll be more like
having MailMate index the content of a hierarchy of disk folders (like
when exporting emails from MailMate using “Command ▸ Export to
Folder”). This would make it easy for the user to re-add the emails to
MailMate in case of a database rebuild. Some day...
