Thanks for the ideas Bob.

Evolution configuration permits one SMTP interface per account, I now
have 5.
Three accounts use one internet URL, one uses the host mail
stack /var/spool/mail, and one uses jnos URL.
Another stumbling block is that jnos (SMTP) does not authenticate well
into my ISPs, so all mail to jnos is a non-starter.

I like the postfix alternative.
I have not prototyped that for evaluation, perhaps to my own detriment.
I do have the fear that postfix may run into the same issue Evolution
has, only at the next level of complexity.
For example: if the address is @44.x.y.z (not my 102.132.20) and the
SMTP host is identical IP then jnos delivery seems to work.
Perhaps postfix supports that thinking? - (I'll look, I admit not having
looked at that level of detail yet)

If jnos succeeded to deliver Internet bound email for you, then I have
an error to fix...:-(
