I suggest moving everything to "Archive".

You can set up both rules and custom keybindings to e.g. move en e-mail to archive and tag it.

When I open MailMate I start with pressing "i".

    "i" = ( "goToMailbox:", "INBOX", "makeFirstResponder:", "mainOutline", "selectFirstMessageRow:" );

I then use these four options to sort through all the mail.

    "r" = "replyAll:";
    "f" = "toggleFlag:";
    "a" = "archive:";
    "d" = "deleteMessage:";

After this my inbox is empty.

See https://xdeb.org/post/2014/05/16/mailmate-replaces-gyazmail-after-four-years/ for more on my workflow and custom keybindings.
