Bug Description

"The previous 'envelope' icon worked better".

UX Testing Finding: "All participants associated the icon with an alarm or reminder. They all failed to interact with it when looking for missed calls and unread messages. They had to go to the dialer and messages separately to check."

This doesn't require any changes to indicator-messages, only to ubuntu themes.

All we need to do is undo the message icon changes that landed in
