Thanks for the comments. I'll have a look at postfix. 
For the record I know why one system I have works and the other doesn't.
Without a config Sendmail connects directly using its hostname to
identify itself to the destination machine. It fails if the DNS domain
isn't valid. On my dodgy system the DNS name does not agree with the
hostname. Demon have been asked to correct it and give enough time I'm
sure they will :-)
