I don't know Sylpheed. But I once had kind of a related problem with
an application that doesn't support X selections (instead it uses
old-fashioned X cut buffers). My work-around was to use emacs'
built-in function x-get-cut-buffer in order to copy text from that
other application into emacs. However, this refers only to copying
text from other applications into emacs. The other way round
(copying text from emacs to other applications) should work even
when the other application uses X cut buffers.
