Ubuntu 10.04: Remove the Chat and Mail Icons but keep the Volume Control

I don't chat. I can find my email on my own, thanks. But I do like the volume control up on the panel. Thanks to Short IP Recipes for the fix: Remove the indicators from your system:

sudo apt-get remove indicator-me indicator-messages

Log out, log back in, and voilà!

Thanks very much for posting this. Although I do use stuff other than email, the move away from standard tray icons does slightly irritate me... I have no idea why the volume control and battery monitor etc can't be in the tray.
