Budgie and pathreon desktops have the same issue at least for many of
the same icons like the mail reader and both decide use "mail-generic"
should not we use it too? or also try to use the same names that they
Also I think the issue relly more in a stardard that haven't reseived
an update or ammendment within like 7 years.

The question persist, I should oppend a bug and if need submit a patch
with (in my optinion) changin to "mail-generic" or this mail in the
mailist is enough?
