# How can I remove "Set Up Mail" and also various other access from the message indicator?

Exists otherwise of getting rid of the "Set Up Mail" and also various other access from the message indicator except uninstalling Evolution? I favor to make use of GMail straight via the internet browser. It is starting to frustrate me given that I go on clicking it by crash then that window bulges.

To remove the Set Up Mail ... (or Chat , Broadcast etc) thing for simply your customer account, merely run the adhering to commands (changing evolution with gwibber, empathy etc) :

This develops a folder that the Messaging Menu checks into for applications to not show :

mkdir ~/.config/indicators/messages/applications-blacklist/ -p


Now, to "blacklist" a thing from the Messaging Menu :

cp /usr/share/indicators/messages/applications/evolution ~/.config/indicators/messages/applications-blacklist/


This has the very same result as getting rid of evolution from /usr/share/indicators/messages/applications yet it will just influence your customer. Additionally, it works quickly, you do not require to log out or reactivate the panel.

If for any kind of factor you intend to re - enable Set Up Mail , merely remove the documents ~/.config/indicators/messages/applications-blacklist/evolution
