Sylpheed has an option to minimise to the notification area:

Configuration|Common Preferences|Detail|Mimimize to tray icon

If checked, Sylpheed does not show up in the Window list when
minimised. In the same tab you can also determine if clicking the tray
icon mimises Sylpheed ("Toggle window on trayicon click").

You are correct that Sylpheed does not distinguish between the tray
icon and the minimisation button. It can however be mimimised to
either the tray icon or the window list using the option in the
"Detail" pane. In other words, adding the distinction should be easy.
