sendmail on server A trying to send email to gmail or other email service and it times out

Trying to get a server of mine to send emails to a gmail account. I can send to my locally hosted email accounts but nothing goes through to a email service I do not host. I have other servers on my network that can send to gmail fine and sendmail appears to be setup the same.

I get time out responses from gmail.

internally I have a BIND server, qmail server and a mysql server. I have a subdomain setup on the DNS server for the server I am trying to send emails with. (originally the hostname was set to local host so I thought maybe it was a rdns rejection)

I didnt think sendmail required much setting up, I swear it was easy the last time I did this.

My problem is somewhat vague and I do apologize in advanced. I am hoping someone might have a suggestion on what to check.

According to this http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=13287 , Gmail requires SSL secure connections.  Everything used to be easier.  Are you sending from a verifiable email address?
