I can second that.

The NEWS file reads:

"* 2.4.6 (stable)

    * The 'To' column was added to the summary view."

Perhaps you should update your copy of Sylpheed to the above version
or preferably to the latest release (i.e. 2.4.7 currently).

The use of HTML emails grows considerably these days (or it's just my point
of view, reflecting the state of my inbox). In my opinion Sylpheed
(otherwise a great client) is really missing out on the HTML thing.
