[stunnel-users] Trouble sending email via smtp with a particular gmail address

Good idea.  I tried using smtp.ourdomain.com, but got another error saying
the address was rejected.  Don't think that's it.

So far, what works:
My User Account:  Both ports 465 and 587.  Also tried changing my password
to the same password as the account that's failing, and that works just
fine, so it's not a password formatting issue
Customer Service Account: sending from Thunderbird using smtp.gmail.com and
same credentials (not through stunnel)

What doesn't work:
Customer Service account:  ports 465 and 587 through stunnel
    tried putting this account in same gmail group.  Even tried elevating
to super admin in case it was a gmail permissions issue.
Another account in the IT group

So stunnel works for my account, but not for others.  Other accounts can
send via smtp SSL/TLS through thunderbird.

Really baffled here.
