SeaMonkey has been the only email client I've ever used since the name change from
Mozilla Suite to SeaMonkey. Before that I only used Mozilla Suite after Netscape 4
went out of support. My first ever email client was Netscape 2. Since SeaMonkey
was actually the Netscape Inc. internal codename for Netscape the
browser/email/composer/address book suite, it actually turns out SeaMonkey is the
only email client I've ever used (not counting webmail), 23 years so far.

All that said, which SeaMonkey *are* you using, version and source (package
manager vs. Exactly which where you using before the current problem

What does "inxi -GMSay" report (you'll get error messages if not using the latest
or a very very recent version from upstream, currently 3.1.06)?

What does "dpkg-query -l | grep -i gtk | sort" report?

All that said, I'm not using SeaMonkey Mail in TDE, but in KDE3 on openSUSE, where
I have 2.53.4 (browser & CZ) and 2.49.5 (browser & mail) running 24/7/365 give or
take. I do have TDE running on lots of other installations on other hardware, but
I don't use any web browsers on them very often, and virtually never do email
except with this my primary box.

That said, what WFM might work for you, once we know what your environmental
details are. One stopper could be Gnome/GTK's insistence on setting Xft.dpi to 96
unless explicitly overridden (it's Gnome's scaling device), which doesn't happen
in openSUSE (unless maybe running Gnome, which I never do, and shouldn't affect
TDE anyway), and could be your only problem.

It's probably going to be best that you change all your fonts customizations back
to whatever they started at before making any suggested changes to come after I
see your answers.

Your OP as I see it (using a 24" 1920x1200 screen):
Note that it shows you didn't send it using SeaMonkey Mail.
