Also, when sending from gmail (or any server that's not your server) it's a
good idea to update your server's SPF records to include those domains so
your emails don't get marked as SPAM.

A record such as:

v=spf1 a mx a:ptr:gmail.com ?all

would ensure that you can send mail from your server and from
gmail.comwithout being marked as a "faked" from address.
