Evolution & TLS Client Certificate authentication

I'm wondering if anyone has been successful with getting Evolution to 
authenticate to a Postfix server with a Client Certificate. My setup 
works fine with Thunderbird but Evolution does not seem to send back its 
p12 certificate when Postfix asks for it resulting in the following 
error message:

warning: TLS library problem: 13127:error:140890C7:SSL 
routines:SSL3_GET_CLIENT_CERTIFICATE:peer did not return a 

Here is the Postfix config that works fine with Thunderbird. It uses 
port 587 as the mail submission port and forces TLS Client Certificate 
SASL Authentication:

submission   inet    n       -       n       -       -       smtpd
   -o smtpd_etrn_restrictions=reject
   -o smtpd_tls_loglevel=1
   -o smtpd_tls_CAfile=/etc/postfix/CAcert.pem
   -o smtpd_tls_security_level=encrypt
   -o smtpd_tls_ask_ccert=yes
   -o smtpd_tls_req_ccert=yes
   -o smtpd_tls_fingerprint_digest=sha1
   -o permit_tls_all_clientcerts
   -o smtpd_sasl_auth_enable=yes
   -o smtpd_client_restrictions=permit_sasl_authenticated,reject

Anyone have this working with Evolution?
