I'll answer because I have used google mail before, but I don't have much experience with PHP.
2. No - google requires an ssl connection.
This is about what coding platform you are using and the objects it has for sending mail. Your application code needs ot be able to communicate with the gmail servers, and they require that it is done over ssl. AFAIK openssl just enables libraries for
PHP so it can talk over ssl.

Thanks for the reply!
Ok, so enabling openssl is pretty safe then. Good to know.
Hmm.... I finally got emails to send out, but for some reason it doesn't like sending it to my work's Google Apps email account. However, I also have a personal Google Apps email account that I use with a personal domain and it does send there.
I've tried different combinations of To/From email addresses but I still can't send it to my work Google Apps email.
This is with using the regular php mail and not going through ssl.
I'll talk to my boss about enabling openssl then.
Maybe it has something to do with the webserver's mail settings. My personal domain is hosted on MediaTemple so I'm sure they've got it all nicely set up so that there aren't any mail issues (and it's really easy to turn off the local mail in the settings).
However maybe my boss's server has some setting that needs to be turned off, even though we're not using the built in mail? hMail is active on that domain, maybe I should turn it off?
