Bug Description

Unity Mail currently displays four static actions from the desktop file in the messaging menu: "Home", "Inbox", "Compose mail" and "Change accounts details". Those actions are useless there (because they duplicate the launcher quicklist) and waste space. It is a regression since precise, caused by a behavior change in indicator-messages (see Lars' comment below). I want to remove two of those actions from the menu by adding a NotShowIn header.

Hi Dmitry. "NotShowIn" and "OnlyShowIn" are the only ways to configure action appearance according to the desktop entry spec [1]. The messaging menu still supports "TargetEnvironment", because it was written before shortcut actions were specified. Please consider TargetEnvironment as deprecated. I've removed it from the documentation and we will also remove it from the source soon.
