Don't know about 7, but in my Vista 64, in Start menu there is an item
"Default programs" (or something like that, my OS is non-English), with
further something like "Set default programs" which opens a list.
Assuming Sylpheed was installed with the option to register the mailto
protocol, Sylpheed is there in the list.

Clicking Sylpheed as default program for whatever filetypes is
associated, now Sylpheed opens with compose window opened and the
e-mail address already filled. Don't know about autocompletion of

Isn't something similar on 7 ?
