Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Try removing these packages, it should eliminate the association with Evolution.

I looked in the "Control Center" on my system under "Preferred Applications" and for "Mail Reader" the only choice is Mozilla Thunderbird. So deleting the above mentioned packages should do the trick.
