I can send from evolution - don't know about mutt or thunderbird as they
may not be installed ??? /etc/selinux/config indicates selinux is
# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
# enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
# permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
# disabled - SELinux is fully disabled.
# SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
# targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
# strict - Full SELinux protection.
# SETLOCALDEFS= Check local definition changes
