If you are using Gnome 2.8+ it does. You need to right-click and choose
properties, the choose the Open With tab. It will say to pick a program
to open foo.pdf and others of type .pdf
Since you are using sylpheed though, I'm not sure whether it is using
Gnome's file associations (or, if it is, whether it's using the new fd.o
standard). You may need to pose it as a sylphed associations question.
