The issue at hand is basically that there is no standard definition for the
mail icon. Since we can generally expect the "emblem-mail" icon to exist in
most themes, this is what we are using. The ideal resolution would be
proposing a patch for the freedesktop.org standards for a new standard mail
The proposed "mail-generic" exists in fewer icon themes than the standard
"emblem-mail" or non-standard "internet-mail".
