Ubuntu: Remove chat program ubuntu 12.04


what is chat program installed by default in ubuntu 12.04 that apears on top of ubuntu. And how can I remove it ?

It's icon is like a white mail beside language selection bar.


You are talking about empathy. Thats the chat program included in Ubuntu.

sudo apt-get remove empathy  


The little envelop in the panel is the indicator-messages applet. You can remove it with

sudo apt-get remove indicator-messages  

But before you remove it, check if apt reports that some other packages depend on it, maybe you don't want to remove those.
