Setting Up Discourse using Gmail SMTP Settings

Yes you could, I had done that initially but ran into a problem very quickly. Note that gmail limits the number of emails sent to about 500 in a 24 hour rolling period. Discourse sends out a What you missed Summary emails to all users once a week or so. So when you hit about 500 users or more then you run into an issue where gmail will block discourse from sending any more emails.
