From the sylpheed-faq ( http://nlpagan.net/sylpheed-faq.html )

3.1 Q01 How do I make Sylpheed display my language?

A. You have to set some environment variables such as LANG,LC_CTYPE, LC_MESSAGES to your local language. Usually LANG (or LC_ALL) is sufficient.

i suppose in shell, something like this:
# echo $LANG - to see what the variable is set to, so you can put it back to it if you screw up
# LANG=newvalue -to set variable to new value
# echo $LANG -to see if the new value was set

xfontsel
#there select the font you need
#then open /root/.sylpheed/sylpheedrc
#and edit all font-lines, put there your font
#Vauala! Everything should work
