Hello Alexandru,
I use a different set up...
I use fetchmail to pull down my gmail into my system's mail spool and
then gnus reads it from there, when I reply, gnus has to send it through
the gmail server and adjust the From: header.

(defun fs-change-smtp ()
  "Change the SMTP server according to the current from line."
    (let ((from
             (message-fetch-field "from"))))
      (message "From is `%s', setting `smtpmail-smtp-server' to `%s'"
                ((string-match "psmerdon@gmail.com" from)
                 (setq sendmail-program "msmtp"))
                (add-hook 'message-setup-hook 'fs-change-smtp))))))

You would have to of course install the program msmtp and create a
~/.msmtprc file:

account default
host smtp.gmail.com
auth on
user psmerdon@gmail.com
port 587
tls on
logfile ~/.msmtplog

Not sure if you want to go that route though. You might also try the
gnu.emacs.gnus newsgroup where you would definately get a better answer.
