I made this video to show how to use Google OAuth, but it also demonstrates outgoing mail set up:


I believe that it is obligatory to use a legitimate GMail account in order to use their SMTP service. If you don't want to use vivekjustthink@gmail.com, I'd suggest you create a new account such as smtp.boscosofttech@gmail.com. You can then go to the settings menu (the geery-wheelie thing in the top-right) and choose Forwarding and POP/IMAP. You can then configure it to forward all email to vivek@boscosofttech.com.
