I guess you didn't fully understand what Attila wanted to tell you:
Sylpheed handles html messages, but probably not the way you
expect it to. Sylpheed just displays them as plain text, but with
hyperlinks to follow (and some formatting).

Do you know lynx?


It's a text web browser. It doesn't display fancy backgrounds,
fonts, etc. - just the text with hyperlinks (and some formatting).

Sylpheed works in a similar way. It kinda "strips" (parses) the HTML
and displays it as text.
