[MlMt] Really making default email account stick

I have a common inbox for two email accounts (work and gmail). I 
happened to set the gmail account up first even though I use the work 
account for >95% of my email. Now in some situations where mailmate has 
limited information about my intentions it uses my gmail account.  An 
example is when I click on a mailto link in an email sent to my work 

I have actually set

defaults write com.freron.MailMate MmDefaultAccount -string 

to my work account without any obvious effect.

Would anyone have any ideas for how to ensure that my default send 
account is the one that I prefer?

Many thanks,
