What kind of number do you need?
The only number that means jack sh*t is Fedora head count.
I don't care about Windows users - no do I care about Slackware users
(that dropped GNOME long ago).
I can about Fedora users.
As such, the mailing list numbers seem to contradict your initial claim
("Evolution is useless for most users now. ") because as it stands, most
of people reading your post, are doing it using Evolution.
Evolution may be useful for users need to sync with PDA or connect to
an EXCHANGE server. But that is a very small portion.
Being bloated, slow and memory hog, evolution is useless. There are
other MUAs doing
a better job in almost all things.
For me evolution works. Not great, but works.
If it doesn't work for you... it is your choice to remove it.
Don't take away my -right- to use Evolution, just because you're too
lazy to exercises yours. (To remove it)

So there is no point making it a default mailer.
If Fedora users were the mind-less-drones that you consider them to be,
they would be using Windows.
instead of Linux "Because it there by default"
The mere number of non-Evolution users combined with the mere number of
KMAIL and/or KDE users on this list makes your post look over simplified
