What do you use for email notifications?

I wrote an application that sends an email notification to the user with a hyperlink. I was using a my personal Gmail account during testing (smtp.gmail.com) and it worked fine using port 587 with my login credentials.

I thought I would try and get a Google Apps for business account and do it the exact same way in production but I cannot for the life of me get the email to go through using the new account. Every single factor in my code is the same with exception to the username and password for the smtp server.

Is Google not the right thing to use for this? What do you all use?
