You could shut it down. 
Or restart it with "evolution --offline".

Well, the way I see it, the whole point of running a job with cron is
that you don't have to actually do anything in preparation beforehand.
So what I am looking for is a way to safely shut down Evolution from a
bash script. Restarting from the script it is trivial.

So, let me ask you this. Is it safe (or advisable) to shut down
Evolution with a kill command?
