I think I've managed to configure on the office machine
to use port 587. 
nmap office-machine
run on my home machine yields (among other things)
25/tcp    filtered smtp
587/tcp   open     submission
(I need the 25/tcp so my office machine continues to accept other
incoming mail so as to act as a mail transfer agent.)

Are you sure that sendmail is actually listening on the right port (nmap
just says that *something* is listening)? Are you sure that the Evo
machine is sending to the same port? Try telnetting to that port and see
if you get the SMTP greeting.

But I can't configure evolution to send mail using my office
machine.  Nothing I try works.

You need to be more explicit. What have you tried? How does it fail?
