Sorry, yes it was supposed to be:

Note: I modified my command to open the mail window first and the brower
second, on a non-modified version it will simply be:
Also, other than that, this is on a test system with a new, fresh
8.04.1, new kde 4.1, and synaptics installed SM.

And that probably is your problem:

Yes. Change it to Exec=seamonkey %u
You see, "Exec=" means "run this as a command". Now, if you try to run
'ksystraycmds' or 'ksystraycmd' from the terminal what happens?
Right... but if you run 'seamonkey' from the terminal SeaMonkey starts
up. Note: 'seamonkey %u' from the terminal will open up SM and try to
use %u as a url, so leave the %u off in terminal mode, %u only applies
to the menu application.
In fact, I'd recommend that you rename the entire file to
x-seamonkey.desktop-x and just take mine and plug it in and see what
happens. It certainly won't hurt anything.
