There's also the `specifiers.plist` file in the MailMate application 
bundle. This kind of describes the available parsers for sub-parts of 
header values, e.g., `from.address`. It's also possible to create custom 
specifiers, but this is a pretty low-level “feature”.

(Most of the specifiers are handled by regular expressions, but some 
have built-in parsers in MailMate for performance and robustness reasons 
-- a lot of bugs in some types of headers need to be handled.)

I'll note to check that this still works. A lot of code has been 
rewritten in the past year including code related to saving attachments.
