[MlMt] Default columns not honored, asking again....

I have had such issues with using default columns in junk, draft, and 
sent mailboxes. I mean setting the default columns does not stick. 
However, these three mailboxes actually need different columns for 
practical use, so I did not fight it. The custom column settings for 
these mailboxes stick. They just ignore the default columns.

Ben wrote once that the only possible fix for such issues is to start 
over with mailbox related states (column selection/width/order and 
threading mode). That is to Quit MailMate and execute this line:

      defaults delete com.freron.MailMate MmMailboxRelatedStates

Then arrange the desired columns for one of the mailboxes (besides the 3 
above) and set the new default.
