[MlMt] Custom keybindings file

I've narrowed down the problem, which arises when imap: UUIDs of IMAP mailboxes are entered. From the manual:

> A mailbox UUID is not always a UUID in a strict sense, but it is always a unique identifier for a mailbox. It can be one of the > following:

> The UUID of a smart mailbox (as saved in ~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/Mailboxes.plist)
> A standard mailbox name such as inbox, archive, drafts, sent, junk, and trash.
> A full path for a mailbox within an account such as imap://you@imap.example.com/Special

My working keybindings file uses a coded URL for every mailbox, even IMAP mailboxes:

"m" = ( "goToMailbox:", "D95CD39B-3CEB-4060-901F-13732A91044F", "makeFirstResponder:", "mainOutline" ); // MailMate

But the non-working (revised) keybindings file uses an imap: UUID:

"m" = ( "goToMailbox:", "imap://myaddress%40pobox.com%40mail.pobox.com/INBOX/MailMate", "makeFirstResponder:", "mainOutline" ); // MailMate

Unfortunately, I can't find a way to obtain the current UUID in the first form -- only the second, which seems to break the keybindings file.

Any suggestions?

The file type should be the same (they're text files, but the extension is .plist.) The main thing I've done is ensure that the correct mailbox UUIDs are present; I used copy and paste.
