I'm sure you know the game of ping pong? You send a "ping" to the machine at the other end, it catches the ping and sends a "pong" back to you. That's all -- it's just a way of checking if the network between you and them is up. The faster the ping response, the faster the network.

At least my SMTP on gmail started working yesterday.
