YES I have seen this behavior every day. Since I don’t have sound on 
for alerts, the thing I notice is that as I’m going through my Inbox, 
every so often instead of a down arrow (or N/P with my key bindings) 
moving me to the next message, what I see is that the Apple Menu has 
been highlighted and opened instead. I have to click away from that and 
then highlight my next message in Mailmate and at that point I can work 
normally until the next time it happens. I see this behavior at least 2x 
and up to 10+ times in a typical day. I’d love to be able to stop this 

Thank you,
