If I understand your problem correctly, this isn't the doing of
Sylpheed but the window manager / desktop environment of your
choosing AND it's configurable.

For example in KDE, clicking on the north-left icon of the Sylpheed
window opens a menu where you can select,

Configure Window Behavior -> Window-Specific Settings

where you can define all Sylpheed windows to be confined to a specific
desktop. That way when Sylpheed produces a pop-up, it doesn't come-up
on your active window but on the desktop it's defined.

I'm sure there are similar setting in others.
