I'm not sure about Moodle, but I have had to connect gmail to our issue tracking system (open source... eventum (https://launchpad.net/eventum)... check it out, its pretty good). Are you making sure that you are connecting to send mail securely through SMTP (aka port 465)? Its the only thing I can think of.

Subject: Moodle / Gmail...
We are using google apps education edition for our domain, including e-mail. We also installed Moodle 1.9.5+ (Build: 20090624) on Ubuntu server version 2.6.24-23-server #1 over the summer. Our technology teacher now has all of the classes built and teachers are using the system, but the teacher cannot configure moodle to communicate with gmail to send out all of the broadcast e-mails. Does anyone have experience setting this up? The teacher did a lot of investigation on this, and none of the solutions seem to help. Any ideas would be appreciated.
