Local fix

Problem summary

  • font face id in font id is limitted to BYTE, that is 255 at
     most,   but on Mac, the font face id often exceed the
     limitation, but other BYTEs on font id are used to store other
     font information, like size, type, color, etc.
    so the fixs
     will record the default mail font face name when add/update
     default mail font as well as client startup,  then, translate
     the default mail font face name to face id and set as the text
     font id here.
