Yes this is, but lots of translations are not recognised by me. I am used to english for computer things.

Yes. It was working after aplying 'account lijst verversen' (refresh account list)

Curl installation added the functionality for new versions of Sylpheed.
I followed the suggestion to update, but it only points to the (japanese) website.
I found the english button, but did not see how to UPDATE the existing Sylpheed.

The first installed version just worked for me, but the source for 3.5.1 I don't get build yet.
This Debian installation is fresh and incomplete it seems to mis the GTK+ 2 even after several attempts to fix this ommission.

I got this far:

checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.8.0... Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
*** Could not run GTK+ test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GTK+ is incorrectly installed.
configure: error: Test for Gtk failed. See the 'INSTALL' for help.
