[MlMt] Selecting default SMTP server

My experience was that no matter what account I chose in the drop-down menu, the same SMTP server was chosen. Not the one I wanted. I verified this by sending a message each time and looking at the raw message to see what SMTP server handle it. In all cases it was my Tuffmail SMTP server. Even when the account I chose was Fastmail.

Of course, now that I deleted Tuffmail from Mailmate, this problem is gone because I only have one account in Mailmate now: Fastmail.
