Unable to send email with watcher

I have done the configuration in the yml for gmail
#------------- WATCHER EMAIL ACCOUNT SETUP -------------------
profile: gmail
auth: true
starttls.enable: true
host: smtp.gmail.com
port: 587
user: alejandrochaves1997@gmail.com

And also store the account SMTP password with the keystore command

bin/Elasticsearch-keystore add xpack.notification.email.account.gmail_account.smtp.secure_password

Any idea what might be happening?

did you use quotes for the setting in Elasticsearch-keystore? Also, I think it might need an ES restart to take that into account, not sure.

i just use:
bin/Elasticsearch-keystore add xpack.notification.email.account.gmail_account.smtp.secure_password

and then set the passwd, and i restart Elasticsearch too.
where i need to put the quotes?
can you write me an example of the command if im writing him wrong?
