[Pkg-exim4-users] Trouble using exim4 as smart-host

My difficulty has come about because of my recent install of Debian jessie; the
process I am about to describe worked fine with wheezy.
Here is the content of my /etc/exim4/update-exim4.conf.conf, created when I last
ran dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config :
NB: 'alanmcc.localdomain' is my box here at home. 'his.com' is Heller Information
Services, a long-time ISP and mail and web services provider here in MD.
Finally, the _problem_: I send mail, using mutt, to alan at his.com . It arrives
there fine. This shows that I am accepted by his.com, i.e. my password to his.com
is OK. But when I send mail to other addresses, e.g. my gmail account, it is not
relayed on as it should be by a smart-host.
I have queried Heller, and received unhelpful responses: "You have upgraded on your
own responsibility, we don't know exim or mutt"
I don't know very much about exim4. The documentation says that I, as root, can
add or modify the update-exim4.conf.conf . So my question is: does the above
update-exim4.conf.conf look as it should? Should something be changed? a line added?
I hope that people here who also use smart-hosts will give me some good advice/tips.
