Fix the symlink at ~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/Messages to
point to either:
1. ~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/Messages.noindex if you have
not set a "Custom Location" for your Messages folder.
2. Wherever your Messages folder actually lives, after copying them
there from the old system.
