No, SeaMonkey is the suite (browser, email, composer, etc.) and does not offer a modular installer.

If you only want an email client, consider Mozilla Thunderbird which is similar to the email portion of SeaMonkey with which is shares internal code.

There once was a bug for this sort of thing:

Seamonkey (suite) NO option to install individual components only

Seems to me that a mail only installer for SeaMonkey would be called Thunderbird.

Last I checked, the UIs are very different and SeaMonkey doesn't advertise for email providers.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

The UI may be different but that's not the sole basis of comparing email clients. The functionality of Thunderbird and SeaMonkey in terms of email are very close and the file structures and underlying functional code (other than UI) are very similar..
