To a font last year, Hiro replied:

"Edit %APPDATA%\Sylpheed\sylpheedrc by any text editor.
Find and modify or rename the following line:

message_font_name=Monospace 12

Anyway, Monospace is an abstract font, and it will be automatically
replaced by any installed fixed-width font on display. It is
recommended to choose your favorite font.

To change the font of folder list, you have to create/modify gtkrc
file, or modify system-wide display property."

Hope that helps,
