Sounds like there might be corruption in the application's internal 
resources on your system.  Have you tried the "nuclear" option?  Delete 
the app, as well as the entire contents of your ~/Library/Application 
Support/MailMate/ directory (saving any manual customizations you might 
have made in there), and re-install.

I expect you'll lose things like any smart mailboxes you have 
configured, tags you have applied to messages (depending if your IMAP 
server supports preserving client-side MAP keywords), etc.  Perhaps 
others have tricks to preserve those...
