        righto.
        have you tried connecting to port 25 on your SMTP server?

        Have you looked at the SMTP server logs ?

          Have you reviewed the settings for SMTP? Have you allowed anonymous authentication? Locked it down by IP etc?

                    Probably not.
                    From what you are saying above, you are sending via gmail, who are almost certainly going to want some credentials (to avoid becoming the worlds largest spammer).

                        Put in your gmail username and password?
                        (and check their site for client settings)

                          Not sure if this particular typo was when running the command or when posting here, but make sure you're spelling gmail properly...

                            Gmail uses the secure ports of smtp and pop.
