My default email is using Outlook, which I have access to, but I want to use my gmail account. How do I get it switched. I am trying to exclusively use gmail.

Welcome to the Forums.
I regret to have to inform you that OpenOffice will not use any online email system as the default.
If you insist on using just Gmail, then you'll have to follow these steps:
1) Save your document(s) to your hard drive.
2) Open Gmail
3) Compose a new email.
4) Attach the document(s) to the email.

An alternative is to configure an Outlook profile to use your Gmail settings, then when sending an email from OpenOffice using Outlook, select the Gmail profile.

If you are prepared to install Thunderbird to access your gmail account and set it as your default mail client, OpenOffice should be able to use it.

Or you can use any other email client that supports the MAPI protocol.
