In the past (a good few years ago) I tried and failed to do with sendmail what 
I can now easily do with postfix. I don't want it to do much - just relay 
mail out of the house and use an alias table to sort it on the way in.

Postfix works for me, sendmail does not work for me.

Oh, and I didn't notice the EXIM4 fanatic posting a step by step solution to 
the OP's problem. So his posting was of no help whatsoever to the OP.

Neither has he been any more specific about what exactly is trash about the 
email provider which continues to give me an excellent service.
