Gmail As SMTP Server For E-Newsletter Plugin

I am trying to see if the e-newsletter plugin will work with gmail. I have tried multiple ways of configuring it to make it work, with no success. I have tried different ports suggested online and different ways of listing the name of the smtp server, all with no luck. Does anyone know how to do this and make it work? The other option is a good FREE smtp server that is easy to configure with this plugin... thanks :wink:
