Steps how to reproduce with with  English SeaMonkey 2.41a1  (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:44.0)  Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0 Build 20151103003001  (Classic Theme) on VirtualBox Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:

0. Create VirtualBox 64Bit Ubuntu 14.04 LTS if you do not have a 64bit 
   Linux/Ubuntu machine → if necessary install Firefox and Thunderbird,
   make them default applications for everything they ask for.
1. Install above mentioned SeaMonkey 64bit
2. Launch SM, confirm all checkboxes "Make SM Standard appliction",
   uncheck "Always Ask" → [ok]
3. Quit SM → Relaunch  SM → Menu 'Edit  → Preferences → Mail & Newgroups
   → Make    SM Default application for Mail, News, Feeds'
   (Strange, after step 2 all 3 buttons should have been greyed) → 
   [Close]
4. Redo Step 3: 
   Bug: Mail, News, Feeds not greyed, it seems that step 3 did not 
        make SM Mail default application as expected.

Some more tests:

5. Try to send an ODF (OpenOffice) document as PDF via e-mail
   From AOO/LibO via file menu
   expected: SM opens, Mail Composer opens new mail with PDF attachment
   actual: Thunderbird will be opened with PDF as attachment

One more test:

6. In Linux folder Personal/Documents/Downloads rightclick an arbitrary
   file (I used "seamonkey-2.41a1.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2")
   → Email... → Send as:Email → add recipient adress → [Send]
   Expected: SM e-mail client opens with file as attachment
   Bug: TB opens with file as attachment

One more test:

7. To a LibO Writer document add a word with mailto: link behind it
8. <control+click> on word with mailto-link
   Expected: SM e-mail client opens
   Bug: TB opens

Additional information:
a) I can't tell whether this is 64bit related (like Bug 1175598), I 
   currently only have 64Bit machine
b) OS Integration or MailCore, that is the question here.

I wonder whether observations in comment 2 really are concerning the same problem as original report:
d): Test: Menu 'Edit → Preferences → Mail & Newsgroups → Click [Mail] and [News]
    As expected buttons will become greyed
    bug: SM did NOT become default email application.

I wonder why nobody else complains because of this problem? We have official 64Bit Linux builds at  <http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/#linux-x86_64> ...
