Im guessing it's a DNS issue. You said that the servers were isolated?
You could put one of the machines in the network to DMZ to quickly figure out what's going on.

I'd def check on your DNS settings and/or gateway settings.

what are your settings available for the gmail smtp server? Some devices can't do ssl that gmail requires. For those devices, I run a local hmail server as an smtp relay that requires no username or password, and it relays to gmail using ssl and the correct credentials.
