Oh, that's great :), wasn't aware of that before, so thank you very much
for providing this information :).

Not sure, but maybe an update to GTK+ 2.24.8 (or later) could help?

And maybe that could be related:

"* Bugs fixed:
  616544 win32 drag and drop (DnD) broken for GTK+ 3"

? (2.24.7 not even the latest version, see below)

Is there a reason why you are using such an old version of GTK+ for the
Windows version of Sylpheed ;)? Basically already asked that there:

For GTK+ 2.24.8 there seem to be reports like:

"Major update of the win32 backend, it now works at least as well as
the old 2.16.x version that a lot of windows applications was forced to
"It not needed to use 2.16 anymore !"
"So, the newly released Gtk+ 2.24.8 is now officially the best ever
Gtk+ 2.x release on windows."

So, out of curiosity, why do you still use such an old
GTK+ version (2.10.14) for the latest Windows versions of Sylpheed ;)?

Why not update to GTK+ 2.24.8 (or later), if it is said to be at least
as good if not better than older versions ;)?

And, although not sure, maybe it would even make the drag and drop
feature work ;)?
