Tooltips for links on hover appear too soon and stack excessively

Reported by Alex Volkow | February 24th, 2016 @ 08:21 AM

MailMate seems to display tooltips for links using its own method (judging from their yellow color), and they seem to appear too soon, which leads to a cascade of tooltips appearing after a single swipe over the letter pane.
Expected behavior: tooltips appear after the same delay as they do system-wide. Actual behavior: tooltips appear instantly on hover.

Also while the cursor is over the tooltip, it stays visible, but if cascade of tooltips was triggered, all of them stay on the screen (see attached screenshot) until cursor is moved away from them.
Expected behavior: each of the open tooltips hides after the timeout, only last one tooltip stays visible while cursor hover near or over it. Actual behavior: yellowish chaos of long tooltips over the screen that get stuck until you move cursor away from the mail viewer pane.

    The current tooltip method is going to be replaced with something similar to what Safari does. This still appears to be buggy for some users, but if you enable 2.0 features in the General preferences pane and fetch the latest beta then you can try it out (see the Software Update preferences pane).

    Let me know if you have problems with that as well.

    Checked in r5227, looks great as a link bar at the bottom, thanks!
