Most likely, the JPEG image you received was damaged to start with.
Sylpheed -- like many other programs -- tries to decode and display
it, and failing that, fills the part it could not decode properly
with a default color.

I strongly suggest to open the image with your favourite image viewer
(IrfanView for Windows, or xv, gqview or Gimp under Linux, for instance)
and check if the problem is still there, or -- even better -- if the
program returns an error message such as: "Unexpected end of JPEG file"
or some other message. If that's the case, ask the sender to check the
file on his/her end, and send it again back to you.

Hope this helps!
