MailMate does support both. The box format only creates a file per 
folder so for a complete export/import it most likely the better choice.

You have the "Edit -> Select Duplicates" command but I have never made 
use of it.

Yes, MailMate only does IMAP.

Select a message and go to "File -> Open Message".

As other has mention hitting "return" also work.

I have mapped it to "O" in my custom keybindings.

Custom keybindings and smart folders are the killer feature of MailMate 
in my opinion.
