This will get you r5757 (according to the Info.plist file included with 
that download).

After being on r5757 for a while, I have returned to the "bleeding edge" 
(r5789 right now) because I kind of like having a native aarch64 binary. 
  I can't say I'm bleeding much (or at all).  MailMate test releases are 
very stable.  The few notable exceptions I've encountered since I 
started using MailMate have invariably been fixed very quickly.

You get a MailMate.app which you can drag to your Applications folder.
