    Alas, the people at Ubuntu who design the software use the Evolution 
mail software for many things including it seems the task bars.

    Suggest that you re-install Evolution and guess you need to do that 
from a partial init stop place. I am not sure how this can be done and 
someone else needs to help with this. Anyway install Evolution and then 
your system will work.
