I use gmail smtp in V7 / Linux setup with no issue. Here are my settings.

SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com Priority: 5 SMTP Port: 465 Connection Security: SSL/TLS and my user name and password

Some ISPs block SMTP traffic so you have to use their SMTP server, if you have not already, try testing with an email client from the host machine.
