You will need to configure an SMTP relay host in your backup software.  At some point in time, Google had an open SMTP relay host but I don't know if that is still the case.  What you can also do is install the SMTP server on your backup server (not recommended but can be done) and then configure your backup application to use the local SMTP relay.
