Is it possible to hide the 'Email button' without the Cripple preference?

Hi forum.

Because of a bug in SO84R04, a customer wants to hide the 'write email' button from the SO Windows client.

This can be done by crippling this feature from Preferences, but unfortunately, this also cripples the ability to click on any e-mail adress to send an email.

Is there a way of getting the one withou the other?

 

PS: Bug is the following, which has later been resolved.

When the 'New Email' button is pressed, when a company card is open, but before any person has been clicked on, the e-mail adress is from the last active person instead of the company-email. This leads to situations, where the e-mail used, is from another company, than the active one.

"Crippling" e-mail from admin, Preferences/Remove/Remove E-mail screen does as the tooltip suggests.

Hiding the Inbox from the Navigator is slightly different, also known as "Crippled by me".
