Yes, but you might want MM- reference to this for future use… It’s

How to transfer MailMate Settings to another computer

To copy your settings to another computer you need these files 
(depending on what you have customized):

/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/MailMate/*.plist
/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/MailMate/Resources/
/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/MailMate/Bundles/

Note that the last file also contains most of what you have changed in 
MailMate preferences or have changed using the defaults command. You can 
only copy this file before launching MailMate on the destination 
machine. Otherwise, you might have problems with the file being 
overwritten by an older version cached by the system.
