I vaguely remember reading something that Evolution is part of the 
ubuntu-desktop meta package and if you remove it then it'll either 
remove a whole load of other things or make it hard to do an upgrade, 
although I could be wrong, I've just run

sudo apt-get remove evolution

and it's come up with this...

The following packages will be REMOVED

evolution evolution-couchdb evolution-exchange evolution-indicator 

Personally I don't use Evolution, I tend to use Thunderbird instead, 
although I don't remove it normally, according to apt-get, removing it 
will only free up a paltry 12.5MB.  Hardly seems worth my while.
