It does it all through ssh or ssl or something like that. Is that connection happening?

gmail requires an encrypted connection. Have you that side of things sorted

Also, btw, if qmail-queue is showing, your patching of DJB's qmail becomes important, as most remixes of qmail come with patches to qmail-queue.

The obvious noob error there is that individual's mailboxes have to be owned by them and permissions 0600.
There should also be a .qmail file in each user's homedir.
