Is there anyone who knows if this is possible or has some similar

It would certainly be possible to create a bundle command which is
executed when adding a tag, but the hard part is to automate the
printing. That is, you can easily send a file to printing using the
`lp` command, but you first need to convert the `.eml` file to
something nicer like the `pdf` file generated by MailMate before
printing. So, the missing feature you need is to be able to tell
MailMate to export a `.pdf` file instead of the raw `.eml` file.
Alternatively, see if you can locate some third party command to do
[enscript](https://www.gnu.org/software/enscript/) is a good tool for
this. I would love to be able to pipe email from MailMate to
``enscript`` for printing!
