If you are setting up a mail collector not in your regular Gmail mailbox, but in a domain mailbox in Google Workspace (G Suite), then it may not be allowed to use the outgoing mail gateway: In this case, you should contact the administrator of the Google Workspace (G Suite) account to which your Google mailbox is linked to allow the use of an outgoing mail gateway. Details on how to do this can be found in official documentation Google.
