[MlMt] Is there a shortcut to add a rule based on the currently selected message (similar to Gmail's "Filter messages like these" feature)?

Sorry, MailMate cannot do this.

It might not be the best workflow if you end up with hundreds of rules/conditions. They are hard to maintain in the long run. Alternatively, consider if a more general set of mailboxes could be used for archival (or maybe tagging) and then use the “Submailboxes” feature to dynamically organize the emails by, e.g., sender. Possibly, in combination with some smart mailboxes. Alternatively, use searching when you need to find something.
