How to set up Gmail in Outlook when the ISP blocks SMTP?

In Outlook, I'm setting up a Gmail account and I'm not able to send mails because my ISP is blocking SMTP forward.

"When using your provider's SMTP server, just be sure to have your email client copy the sent items to the Sent Items folder on the server.

(When using Gmail's server, your email client does not have to copy the sent items. More on Gmail IMAP settings at How should I configure Mail.App and Google Mail?)"

You can setup your email client to send mail out via your ISP's SMTP server even if using an @gmail.com email address. If necessary, you might have to authenticate with the SMTP server with your ISP based credentials. Basically, you're asking your ISP to relay for you.
