OK to ignore Evolution updates?

I have removed evolution and ubuntu-desktop is fine, as it's only
recommended. The only problem is for evolution-data-server and
evolution-data-server-common, as various packages depend on this, so
it's best to just leave these installed.

sudo apt-get remove evolution evolution-exchange evolution-plugins
