Hi,

Something I would love to see coming in MailMate would be syncing
parameters, and specially Mailboxes, between computers, through Dropbox or
iCloud (Giving the choice would be great actually)
Is that planed?

What do you mean with syncing? IMAP is a server based approach and the
clients are syncing through the IMAP server anyway. What would you like
to achieve?

Perhaps syncing of smart mailboxes and other settings ... which would
be pretty nice.

Yes, this has been requested quite often. If I implement it then I would
try to do it using IMAP itself to store the settings. No need for
another cloud service when IMAP is already available. So far, I have
postponed trying to implement it though since synchronization of files
always turn out to be more complicated than you initially think :-)

For the record, migrating MailMate settings can be done by simply
copying the `.plist` files:

~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/*.plist

But MailMate must **not** be running when doing this and it's not
possible to symlink to a Dropbox folder or anything like that.
