Great hint Javier!  It works!
They said keep it simple...  :D

As recap:
- open "send to" dir

- create a link to:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Sylpheed\sylpheed.exe" --attach %1
(you could just put: sylpheed.exe --attach %1 without any quotes,
complete path will be automatically expanded)

- name it properly: "EMAIL Attachment"
- set a good icon you could change it by select for example
C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll (here you'll find an envelope image
good for the purpose)

Ok, that's all.
No by right click one file and select "send to" appears also the
choice "EMAIL Attachment". If you click on it sylpheed starts up its
compose window with our chosen file preloaded as attachment. The same
works also with multiple files selected (select two or more files,
right click and choose send to > EMAIL Attachment. sylpheed compose
window will appears with files loaded).
So, no batch file needed, nor visual basic script. Just a link!
Mission complete!
Thank you a lot!  :)
