When you send an email to from your gmail account, do see anything related to this process in your mail log?

Oh, I've just run

dig MX
and that's the result:

; <<>> DiG 9.2.4 <<>> MX
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:

That means that your email arrives at or I don't think your server is one of these so you have to change the MX record for first.
