[Mono-aspnet-list] SMTP problem with gmail

I have an application written in ASP.net and I am trying to make it work on
OpenSUSE with Apache2 and mod-mono installed. 

So far everything works fine but I am facing problems when my application
tries to send auto-generated mail through an SMTP host (e.g. Google's gmail
server). The method I use is "mailmessage.send", which is pretty common for
that sort of thing. The interesting thing is that my code executes without
problems all the configuration of the <mailmessage> object (host, port,
username, password etc.) but when it calls the <send> method, I get to wait
for a several minutes and eventually I get an error message of the from
"Process would be aborted".

The application itself has been tested and works on Windows-based platforms
with MS IIS as the web server, so I think it is something to do with how
OpenSUSE contacts the 3rd party SMTP server.

any ideas?
