I'm a beginning user of Gnus too, but I do have a couple of ideas about
what might be wrong with your set up.

I don't see you telling smtpmail which user account to log in
with. Also, if the SMTP server is on a port other than 25, then I think
you have to specify that too.

On the other hand, maybe it can get that information from your
.authinfo file -- I still haven't figured that out. My password is
certainly being retreived from my .authinfo file, so I don't really see
why everything can't be retrieved from there at the same time!

FWIw, I have this:

(setq message-send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it
      smtpmail-smtp-server ""
      smtpmail-default-smtp-server ""
      smtpmail-smtp-service 587                     ; TCP Port.
      smtpmail-starttls-credentials '(("" 587 nil nil))
      smtpmail-auth-credentials '(("" 587 
"" nil))

I don't seem to need a (require 'sendmail).

For the TLS, I have this:

(setq starttls-use-gnutls t
      starttls-gnutls-program "gnutls-cli"

I hope some of this helps!
