check the traceroute to the Google's SMTP server, which you can see in
the account Properties. Mine shows smtp.gmail.com:465 with TLS on a
dedicated port. You can try to change it to smtp.googlemail.com (or
vice versa), whether it'll make any difference. Also try to run
evolution with SMTP debugging on, where you'll see the communication
between the server and the client, though the error itself suggests
that the communication didn't get anywhere far. The command is:
   $ CAMEL_DEBUG=smtp evolution
There is used gnutls in the background, by glib-networking, thus you
might be able to reproduce the same using the gnutls command line
tools. I do not use that much, thus this can be wrong in some parts,
though it worked here like this:
   $ gnutls-cli smtp.gmail.com --port 465
   <many output is printed with connection details, ending with a prompt>
   220 smtp.gmail.com ESMTP xxxxxx - gsmtp
   <then I typed:>
   HELO localhost
   250 smtp.gmail.com at your service   QUIT
   221 2.0.0 closing connection xxxxxx - gsmtp
after which the gnutls-cli claimed:
   *** Fatal error: The TLS connection was non-properly terminated.
   *** Server has terminated the connection abnormally.
which is not your case, because you do not get that far.
