As the error message says, this is a problem with the MailMate *license* 
which is stored in your keychain. You can find it in Keychain Access by 
searching for "MailMate License"

You should make sure that it is there and that in the "Access Control" 
pane of the license key's window it allows access by MailMate. If it 
does not, you can add MailMate there manually or you could just delete 
that license key from the keychain and re-enter your license in 
MailMate. (MailMate->Registration->Add License...)
