Because some E-Mail servers that receive E-Mails from other E-Mails servers
that are not verified with the proper domain, will be blocked
or classified as SPAM. At least that's my experience, I have my own domain
and when I sent E-Mails from my gmail account using my own domain E-mail,
many people told me the E-Mail was classified as spam. As soon as I
configured my domain with Google Apps, the problem was solved.

Maybe I'm wrong or I did something incorrectly, but at least that was my
experience. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

it depends. :-)

If the sending mail server is safely configured otherwise (i.e. not blacklisted, ideally whitelisted, PTR records do match etc., the things any postmaster has to know about), then it should be no problem, given that two factors are met:

1. No SPF records configured, or configured with ?all
2. No DKIM records configured, or configured with (IMHO) dkim=unknown

Otherwise, mails would be classified as spam indeed. We made quite good experience in the past: Many of us used their accounts, but there was no official SMTP server. Worked like a charm, as neither DKIM nor SPF was configured within the domain name.
