[MlMt] Newline rendering in plaintext messages

Yes, the window layout doesn’t matter. The difference is in the HTML 
that MailMate is generating to display the message. I’m wondering how 
and when MailMate generates that HTML, and what options are involved in 
how it processes line breaks in its plaintext source messages.
