Have you tried the above with success?
After the above, make sure Seamonkey is *not* the default mail client
(it probably becomes default during installation) and open your
preferred mail client and reset it as the default. It should work.
Use SeaMonkey Mail as the default mail application: Select SeaMonkey
Mail & Newsgroups as the default mail application for Windows and from
within other applications such as Microsoft Word.
Note: Setting SeaMonkey Mail & Newsgroups as the default mail
application may disable another mail application. To restore the other
mail application as the default, deselect this option.
All of the options are grayed out and cannot be deselected. If this
option worked as advertised in the Help section, would that not solve
Russell's problem without resorting to about:config?
