sendemail after alert fails

Explorer

From /opt/splunk/var/log/splunk/python.log:

2018-11-12 14:29:08,776 +0000 ERROR sendemail:137 - Sending email. subject="Splunk Alert: Errors in develop", results_link="https://localhost:8000/app/search/@go?sid=rt_scheduler__admin__search__RMD58e26482826eced90_at_1542024571_26.426", recipients="[u'my_email@gmail.com']", server="localhost"
2018-11-12 14:29:08,776 +0000 ERROR sendemail:458 - [Errno 99] Cannot assign requested address while sending mail to: my_email@gmail.com

My /opt/splunk/etc/system/local/alert_actions.conf:

[email]
auth_password = XXX
auth_username = my_email@gmail.com
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?

sending mail from query works fine: ... | sendemail to="my_email@gmail.com" format=raw sendresults=1 footer="Sent from Splunk." from="SplunkAlerts" subject="Splunk Alert" message="The following Splunk Alert has been fired:"

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.
