If you've followed the directions to setup your account, then it should work, so I suspect you've made some mistake, however small. When did this problem first start?
In Mail->Preferences, you should have an Account Name for this Gmail account on the left side of that window; if not, then you can't send or receive using your Gmail account from Mail. If you don't have one, click on the + sign to create a new one and then follow the directions that Gmail gives on their web site.
If you have an account for your Gmail address already listed, your Outgoing Mail Server settings should be:
Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.gmail.com
Server port: 587
Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL): check the box
User Name: <your email firstname.lastname@example.org>
Password: Enter your Gmail password
Click on OK.
Under the Advanced tab:
Enable this account: check the box
Include when automatically checking for new mail: check the box
Remove copy from server after receiving a message: your decision; if checked, then choose when you want those messages deleted.
Use SSL: check the box
Close the Preferences window, save and changes, and test it out.
Hope this helps,
