here's a php snippet from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/712392/send-email-using-gmail-smtp-server-from-php-page:

<?php

       require_once "Mail.php";

        $from = "<from.gmail.com>";
        $to = "<to.yahoo.com>";
        $subject = "Hi!";
        $body = "Hi,\n\nHow are you?";

        $host = "ssl://smtp.gmail.com";
        $port = "465";
        $username = "<myaccount.gmail.com>";
        $password = "password";

        $headers = array ('From' => $from,
          'To' => $to,
          'Subject' => $subject);
        $smtp = Mail::factory('smtp',
          array ('host' => $host,
            'port' => $port,
            'auth' => true,
            'username' => $username,
            'password' => $password));

        $mail = $smtp->send($to, $headers, $body);

        if (PEAR::isError($mail)) {
          echo("<p>" . $mail->getMessage() . "</p>");
         } else {
          echo("<p>Message successfully sent!</p>");
         }

    ?>  <!-- end of php tag-->

I checked that gmail has a 500 mail/day limit. Can i in any way or any other smtp server get that limit higher? i heard that i can create multiple Gmail accounts and than check to see if reached the limit and go to the other account, but Gmail block just the account or they have a control by ip to?
