Evolution (and presumably the others you mention) uses OpenSSL (I

I agree with you, there might be a system-wide option to allow weaker
algorithms, which are disabled by default. I only want to give a little
clarification for the above: Evolution (or better evolution-data-
server's Camel library) used to use NSS for connections in the past,
long ago. It uses glib's gio API to connect to servers for several
years, which relies on glib-networking, which uses gnutls in the
background [1]. There's a plan to support also OpenSSL [2].
