[MlMt] Excluding an account Source from global search and Mailboxes

I manage a mail server which has many postmaster@ mail accounts that I 
need to monitor. These accounts receive many hundreds of messages a day, 
such as Delivery Notification Failures, DMARC reports, and other 
transactional messages. I've added these to MailMate, and noticed the 
messages from these accounts appear whenever I do a "Search All 
Mailboxes" and they appear in the Mailboxes section of the sidebar. 
Obviously, it makes MailMate difficult to use when these transactional 
messages are mixed in with my personal and work mail.

I've seen [this 
post](https://lists.freron.com/mailmate/2014-September/003159.html) from 
2014 where Benny says it was not possible to hide mail from certain 
accounts from global contexts. I'm just checking if there has been an 
update: does this feature exist yet?

As an alternative: is there a way to maintain two separate mail stores 
for MailMate, so in one I can have all my normal personal and work mail, 
and in the other all the postmaster@ accounts? Perhaps I can close and 
re-open MailMate (maybe with the option-key held down, like Photos.app) 
to load a different mail library? I guess I could  manually manage two 
separate `~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/` directories, but that 
would not be fun.
