It appears that GMAIL has changed its policy for outgoing email configuration and outgoing email policies. We will investigate this and try to come up with a solution so you may use GMAIL as an outgoing email relay. The main purpose for custom email provided by Life Leadership is to provide incoming email services; which will forward the email to your email specified on your user profile.
We are working on overhaul of the Branded Email system where this custom email will be allowed to be used as an outgoing email.
Hope this helped to shine some light on this situation. Have a great day.
