The smtp server you use is configured on your server, for example, your Apache configuration file. I'm not sure if Google allow everyone to use their smtp server though. You might want to check.

all you need is a google account (usually).
and ask mail function to use the details provided in the script
you might have read that mail() doesn’t use an SMTP server …
