This is small stuff but I haven't been able to figure it out:

How do I hide "Mail" from the mode line in emacs?


Just don't enable display-time-mode.

If you do want time, but not Mail, set display-time-mail-string to an empty string:

(setq display-time-mail-string "")

or, better yet:

(custom-set-variables '(display-time-mail-string ""))
  • So would that be (set display-time-mail-string 0) Mar 19 '14 at 14:12
  • 1
    @Andreas: empty string is "", not 0.
