Build 2002091014

As said (http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=153300), I am a roaming
user therefore, I am forced to have multiple smtp outgoing mail accounts and
newsfeeds.

When I open the "Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings" I see the default account
highlighted, but when I click on another one, there appears to be no way short
of closing that window and reopening it to see which News account is the default.
There certainly could be a radio button/check box on the right side of this
window indicating the default status or leaving that account entry grey or bold
or with a "(default)" annotation on the left side to indicate which one is the
default one.

with build 2002112304, when I open the "Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings"
window for the first time, already the focus is on my smtp outgoing and I have
no clue which news account is active.
Summary: "Default account" insufficiently visible → "Default news account" insufficiently visible
mass re-assign.

Newsgroup accounts can't be the default account (canBeDefaultServer for
NNTP-servers returns false).
