Sylpheed tries to execute metamail if you click on an attachment. If
metamail isn't installed Sylpheed prints "execvp: No such file or
directory" to stderr. There's no configure option for this so this
feature cannot be removed without patching the sources. It can be pretty
scary if you see the warning but don't know what Sylpheed tries to

Double-click on a mail attachment in Sylpheed.
