  13. Send mail through your SMTP server? Select the second option. The default setting is to send mail using Gmail SMTP servers, and while this will work, it is not recommended. The reasons are that Gmail servers are more likely to be blacklisted for spam abuse, and certain mail servers will not receive mail from domains that are not associated with that particular server.
