I'm not entirely sure that I do use gmail for SMTP. I rarely use it to
send mail--i use it mostly as a "junk mail collector" or for something
that requires a gmail address.
I don't recall if I used my own relay for outgoing SMTP from a gmail
address or not.

I wasn't aware of Thunderbird's lineage. I wonder how much of the
original Netscape Mail is in Thunderbird, or even if Thunderbird
understands Netscape mailboxes. I was probably still using NCSA Mosaic
for web browsing in 1996.
