    [SOLVED] How to remove envelope icon from Indicator applet (10.04)

    I have already removed all the apps related to chatting/mail/social, but the icon doesn't disappear. If I remove Indicator applet I loose volume icon, which I actually want to keep.

    thx... worked perfectly... after removing "indicator-messages" just remove the applet from panel and add it back again... the evolution icon goes away.

    I also want to get rid of the envelope, but I am not the only user of this machine so uninstallation is not an option. Is there another way I can remove it?

    Remove the Indicator Applet from the panel.
    and add
    Code:
    gnome-volume-control-applet
    to startup applications
    Which will give you the old karmic style sound icon in the notification area upon restart.



    Alt+F2 ...enter and run
    Code:
    gnome-volume-control-applet
    to start immediately.

    Thanks Stinkeye. That's further than I want to go as I use the other elements of the Indicator Applet (Battery, Volume, Dropbox etc.) but I might try it out all the same.
