You are confusing PGP/MIME (as defined in RFC 3156 "MIME Security with 
OpenPGP") with S/MIME. All occurrences of S/MIME in your message have 
to be replaced with PGP/MIME. S/MIME is something completely different 
(well, not completely different but still different enough).

For what it's worth, at least KMail (with plugin) and Mutt (at least the 
special version of the Aegypten project using the same plugin as KMail) 
can also handle S/MIME. The old Netscape email client also used to know 
S/MIME. I don't know about Mozilla or Evolution.
