A few reasons why I think it could not be working
1) I have two step verification for gmail
2) Gmail host is incorrect
3) I am using splunk by "local host"

Any of these could be right?
Mail host: smtp.gmail.com:587
enable tls
username: my gmail acct
pw: my pw
send email as splunk
I dont have anything for link hostname

If you are using 2FA with Google Mail, you need to set up an "Application Specific Password", and use that password with your Splunk configuration.
