If you have several to set up, and perhaps want to tweak things more 
manually, you can also edit ~/Library/Application 
Support/MailMate/Identities.plist (after quitting MailMate first).

You'll see how it's formatted pretty clearly, but, you can create simple 
stanzas like:

		{	emailAddresses = "address1 at domain.com, address2 at someotherdomain.com, 
address3 at whatever.com";
			name = "Jayne Smythe";
			serverURL = "imap://username@hostname.domain.com";

I'd recommend making sure you have a backup before editing the file, 

In this case, this will create three email addresses for Jayne Smythe in 
the drop-down when you restart MailMate, and you can select which one 
you want when you send the message.

I actually have the same serverURL defined a few times, with different 
"name" and "emailAddresses" defined; it's a convenient way to work with 
role accounts where the email server may be the same, but, you want/need 
a different sending identity.
