Is there a way to remove evolution and replace it with Thunderbird on the indicator applet? I would also like to get rid of empathy as well.

thanks

just delete it altogether and make a luncher to run thunderbird with alltray or kdocker so it's docked to your system tray,

install the new mail icon addon in thunderbird and you have a mail client that sits in your system tray then displays an icon when you get a new email

Doesnt it have something to do with notifications? If I delete it will I still get notifications?

don't think so, i think it's only to notify you of events in evolution/empathy.
i've never noticed it doing anything else
