Relying on years and years of habit and training, you expected MailMate to open the message in a separate window, of course, when you clicked on it twice in rapid succession. Inexplicably, MailMate embarked on a search and journey of sorts.
Fortunately, you can set up MailMate to perform the action you most expect for double-clicking an email: opening it in its own window, not searching for related messages.
