Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-control-center

== Steps to reproduce ==
1) Run sudo apt-get remove evolution-data-server
2) Now run gnome-about-me

== What happens ==
gnome-about-me doesn't open and fails with the error:

(gnome-about-me:3957): libebook-WARNING **: e-book.c:2229: cannot activate book: Failed to execute program /usr/lib/evolution/e-addressbook-factory: Success

(gnome-about-me:3957): libebook-WARNING **: e-book.c:2229: cannot activate book: Failed to execute program /usr/lib/evolution/e-addressbook-factory: Success

about-me-properties-ERROR **: Failed to execute program /usr/lib/evolution/e-addressbook-factory: Success
aborting...
Aborted

== What should happen ==
* gnome-control-center should depend on evolution-data-server

OR

* the part of gnome-about-me that needs evolution-data-server should not show if evolution-data-server is not installed, so gnome-about-me should run as normal. gnome-control center would then needs a Suggests (or similar) on evolution-data-server

I can confirm this bug report. It's affecting me as well. Installing evolution-data-server fixed the problem for me.

That configuration dialog is deprecated in GNOME3 and Oneiric so closing the bug, feel free to open new bugs about other issues you might find though

it is not only related to gnome-control-center, nautilus too if you try to use the 'Send to...' function will give the problem
if evolution is no more the default mail reader, all bindings to the data server must be removed/disabled
