Have you tried to change the outgoing SMTP port to 587? Apple Mail won't send mail with my sever using SMTP port 25. Works fine when I change the port to 587.

Also, Gmail's servers have been up and down quite a bit the last few days.

Insert the install DVD, reboot, go to Utilities>Disk Utility and Run Repair Permissions from there. Be patient takes its own sweet time.
