Description

I'm using Sylpheed (3.2.0-1) and Gnome 3 (3.4.2) on Arch Linux 64 bit (3.4.7-1-ARCH kernel), but it isn't shown in the email section of the Gnome 3 "preferred applications" list, seeming like Gnome can't recognize it as an email client. Dont know if it happens with other distro as well ...

Anyway, I've resolved by adding the line:
MimeType=message/rfc822;x-scheme-handler/mailto;
to my /usr/share/applications/sylpheed.desktop
and then giving the command (as root):
update-desktop-database
