Dear Mr Walsh:

Thanks very much for the information.  I did as you said, turned
SELinux back on, and now mediawiki can send email, like it is supposed

I would not have figured it out if you had not posted your advice.

I hope this thread finds it way to google so other people will see it
is a solved problem!
