We are currently testing a new option that may help people send mail without using a third party service. If you are interested in testing this product, please fill out the interest request form here1. Product Management for the feature may reach out to you.
We are also continuing to make improvements to our system to allow for some customers that have an established relationship with us to apply for an exception to be able to send directly on port 25. There are a number of IP reputation issues that have to be worked through for such a use case, so it should not be considered a common solution that will meet everyone’s needs.
We will have more updates on both of these items over time.

So I am joining the bandwagon.... It took me a little while to figure out why my mail was not sending. So after wasting 2 days setting up a mail server, only to find out I can never send an email is simply a show-stopper!! I have been thinking about GCP VM usage for a while now.. but after discovering this.. I'm done, I'm not even going to waste my time with Googles bulls**t "were looking into...", because Google has been known to "look into..." blackholes!!
And when you see things like https://killedbygoogle.com/ it makes you wonder if there is any point ...
