[email] auth_password = XXX auth_username = firstname.lastname@example.org hostname = localhost mailserver = smtp.gmail.com:465 pdf.header_left = none pdf.header_right = none use_ssl = 1
what configuration am I missing? errno 99 is EADDRNOTAVAIL , not clear what is not available, is it the server="localhost" in the error log? where should I set it?
I ended up editing
/opt/splunk/etc/apps/search/bin/sendemail.py, don't see whats wrong with the configuration or why this isn't working out-of-the-box.
