I'd download Thunderbird and install it and set it as the default. Also, 
for good measure, start Thunderbird and goto "tools -> options -> 
advanced -> general" and click "check now".

Thunderbird should make sure all the keys are then. Then, you should 
able to reinstall Sylpheed. Then, you should be able to go into "default 
programs" and set sylpheed as the default client.

Then, in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\mailto\shell\open\command", 
make sure the command is:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Sylpheed\sylpheed.exe" --compose "%1"

Then, make sure to set Opera to use "open with default application".
