My personal way to solve this was to use macOS's native Keyboard 
Shortcuts in the Keyboards control panel to map option-leftarrow and 
option-rightarrow to the MailMate Menu commands Previous Alternative and 
Next Alternative.

Charlie's suggestion is great for the one-key solution, but, I've been 
using the keyboard application shortcuts to "fix" apps for so many 
years, it was the quickest solution for me.
