Thanks Doruk.  I have installed curl, libcurl3 and libcurl3-gnutls and
Sylpheed still crashes after sending.  I then disabled "Enable auto
update check" in the configuration settings.  It still crashes.  Only
now it just dies with  "Segmentation fault" and no mention of curl. :-)

I dug around in my old setup that uses 3.0beta4 in Ubuntu 9.04 32 bit.
In that case all is working well and it has "Enable auto update check"
enabled and libcurl3 and libcurl3-gnutls installed.  (That's why I
installed the two libcurl3's as well as curl in my 64 bit system.)

Any other ideas?    John
