once extruded you need to select either the faces you want or the whole model and go to edit polygons/normals/soften harden the default angle for softening and hardening is 30, where basicly any angle 30 degrees or less is softened and any greater is hardened. For your model the default will definately do the trick, because the angles you have are 90 degrees so it will harden the edges rather than softening them. I use this tool constantly when modeling.

Good luck,
