By looking at the HTML emails I receive, it looks like they are
declared as "Content-Type: multipart/alternative;" with two parts:

1. Content-Type: text/plain
2. Content-Type: text/html

So one possible hack I can think of is to add the HTML as attachment
(maybe put the "un-htmled" version in the main body), and then edit the
message changing "multipart/mixed" to "multipart/alternative".

Raw messages can be edited in Sylpheed by adding an "Action" (see
Configuration -> Actions), for example I have an "Edit message" action
which calls "gvim -f %F". 

Let us know if that works.
