[MlMt] Where are Smart Mailbox settings stored?

Here are my notes gathered from MM’s Help or User Manual regarding 
Settings files. To copy your settings to another computer (or replace 
missing files), you need these files (depending on version, reverting to 
what you have customized):

* /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/MailMate/*.plist 
(Identities, Mailboxes, Sources, Submission)
* /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/MailMate/Resources/ <- 
not there in 5870+
* /Users/<username>/Library/Application 
Support/MailMate/Managed/Bundles/ <- not in 5878+
* /Users/<username>/Library/Application 
* /Users/<username>/Library/Preferences/com.freron.MailMate.plist

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.

You can substitute *~/Library/* for the leading relative path in the 
above, if logged into your user account in Terminal. I do not have the 
info on which specific files contain the data you’re looking for 
(conditions), but pretty sure one of these does.

Some were consolidated in later versions of software as noted. YMMV 
depending on which version you run. Don’t forget to quit M-M before 
making changes. Backing up the current and changed versions is a good 
idea before restarting the app. Good luck!
