I doubt that one would use two different mail applications inside Kontact at 
the same time, or at least that's such an edge case that I would happily 
ignore the differentiation between KMail and Mailody for sidebars.

Sidebars, btw, are likely to have different needs in terms of icon layout, 
which is why Kontact uses icons named view-pim-* for its sidebar, in 
particular view-pim-mail for the mail part. Personally, I would expect 
Mailody to use that icon as well when operating inside Kontact.
