Is there anyway to use the GMail SMTP service for the “SMTP Server Settings” in the “Configuration/System Settings”?

I tried the following without success.

Server: smtp.gmail.com
Port: 465
User: Me@MyDomain.com (my gmail account)
PW: **********  (my gmail password)
Enable SSL: Yes

I get the following error message:

“SMTP Error: General failure
The transaction could not occur. You receive this error when the specified SMTP host cannot be found.”

Any assistance or advice would be greatly appreciated on this.
