No, but MailMate learns any abbreviation you might use to get to a 
specific mailbox. In other words, MailMate can “learn” that “mm” 
means some “MailMate” IMAP mailbox.

But you don't want to *always* go to the mailbox I guess.

Such a feature does not exist, but it could be implemented. MailMate 
could probably just review the undo-stack to find the information. It 
could even display the X most recently used mailboxes for “Move to” 

Would such a feature solve your use case? In most cases you would then 
need to hit ⌘T followed by enter to go to the mailbox. It seems more 
flexible since you then control when to do so instead of being forced 
after every move. It should, possibly, even be default behavior.

Select the mailbox in MailMate and use ⌘C to puts its identifier on 
the pasteboard.

Then create a key binding like this:

	"m" = ( "moveToMailbox:", "identitifer" );

You can also move relative to the IMAP account of the selected message:

	g = ( "moveToMailbox:", "/Special");

That would move an email to a mailbox named “Special” in the same 
account as the email.
