With the forthcoming release of OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) it is also a good time for a MailMate update.

This release is compatible with El Capitan, but it also includes numerous other new features, changes, and fixes. As usual, all the details can be found in the release notes.

One new feature deserves extra attention. MailMate now includes a Spotlight importer for .eml files (standard email format). This feature is enabled in the General preferences pane and it allows searching for MailMate emails using the Spotlight interface. It also allows searching emails stored elsewhere which means that a local archive of emails (stored in the .eml format) is now also searchable if MailMate is installed. (Don’t tell anyone, but this works even if MailMate is not registered.)
