Did you try a Google search?  customize Evolution toolbar

It found this, from a link at the top of the list:

 ----------------  begin paste ------------------

I found a file /usr/share/evolution/2.22/ui/evolution-mail-message.xml.
At the bottom there is a section
<dockitem name="Toolbar">
<!-- ... toolbar buttons ... -->
I manually added the button there (after making a backup of the original
file, of course). Unfortunately, Evolution does not load the icon,
although there is an icon of the needed size
in /usr/share/icons/gnome/24x24/actions.

But still, thank you. At least, one is able to remove buttons, without
any issues, this way.

----------------= end paste ------------------

If your version doesn't have that particular file, have a poke around
for other likely XML files.
