No you don't.
Edit your php.ini to use SMTP of your ISP. That should be all you need. That's the entire purpose of SMTP connections.
I could setup a server without any MTA at all and have it connect to an SMTP to send the mail. What do you think the point is using Gmail SMTP? Gmail is the MTA.
Basically your instructions appear fine except you do not need MS Office installed. If you did install it and think that was helped it work you're wrong.
