Using JEMH, how can I set a default issue type per project

I have a very simple setup where the users enter the project key in the subject line of email to route to the right project. I have a fallback project, CHG with a fallback issue type, "Change". But, if user specifies project (ABC) in their subject line, and project ABC has no such issue type as "Change", then their issue is posted with type = "Bug", the global default. This issue type makes no nsense for Project ABC, and I need it to be "Update". What I need is to specify a separate default issue type for each project. I don't want users to have to add directives. Is there a way to do this either in Jira (5.2) or JEMH (latest)?

Aha. The behavior I was seeing was because my issue type scheme in project ABC did not have a default issue type. Once I set one, it seems that now the newly created issue defaults to the default issue type for the scheme, and not the global default.
