Remove “Set Up Mail” and other entries from the message indicator?

In previous Ubuntu versions i could add a .desktop file in ~/.config/applications/indicators/messages/applications-blacklist and the items would no longer appear in the messaging menu. In 12.10 this no longer works. How can i remove unwanted entries?

Thanks in advance!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

For 12.10 and newer:

Go to dconf-editor and then canonical > indicator > messages and remove the app you don't want to see.
