sendemail [Errno 110] Connection

I'm trying to send an email with the server being different from the one specified in the system settings. Here is the search that I'm using:

mySearch | sendemail to="myEmail@place.com" server=myServer

I'm getting this error:

command="sendemail", [Errno 110] Connection timed out while sending mail to: myEmail@place.com

This works on a splunk server on the same subnet. Is this a problem with the way I'm using sendemail or is it more likely a network issue?

That error is a network error and not really a Splunk error.

I would do a couple of connectivity tests to the sendmail server with the details you're trying to use, make sure you have the right ports etc.

I am having same issue. I can telnet over the smtp port to the smtp server configured in the email settings in splunk from an ssh session to Splunk host. I don't see how this is a networking issue and I can see the traffic going out of my firewall.
