As you read the other thread....
1/ you have to deal with firewall-s and routers.

2/ conflicting requirements like requirement of ssl (supported starting at 9.4)

You did not get a Syntax Error. That doesn't indicate the processing of sending was succesful.

Do not expect correct error messages or notes of something happening outside the SAS world.

SAS(R) 9.3 System Options: Reference, Second Edition ( EMAILAUTHPROTOCOL= System Option)
I would expect to be set to Yes as SMTP has normally no security by using valdiatied lines/machines (bulk mail).

Google Gmail:

Account must be set open to use IMAP/POP (go to mail-settings)

Checking SSL/TSL What Are the Gmail SMTP Settings? - About Email ...

Gmail is requiring SSL/TLS and SAS is supporting it with 9.4. Do you have 9.4?
