Sounds like an expensive solution to me. Is there no other simple hack?

The main advantage of gmail or any web based program is that the user will be 
able to access the email from anywhere on earth (as long as he has internet 
connection). If he has to use some other SMTP server, then it beats the 
purpose doesnt it?

Anyway, if no better solution comes up, then I will add this as suggested.
