I'd like to set up email notifications for success / failure of images but will be the 1st to admit I have no idea what to enter into the boxes (other than my email address, of course).  I use gmail.

This will be improving with Reflect V8, which will add support for OAUTH2, but until then, here is your guide.  If you're using regular personal Gmail rather than G Suite, I don't think the SMTP Relay Service setup listed first is an option for you.  I believe you'll need to use the alternate Gmail SMTP server instructions found below it.  And note the requirement for generating an app-specific password in your Gmail account first if your account has two-step verification enabled.

I'm curious why Reflect would need my gmail password to SEND me an email?

My only guess would be it needs your gmail account as a sender in order to send messages.  That it can only send e-mail from an already configured client.  Which means Reflect has to "log in" to your e-mail account on the server to send a message.  Or it could be a peculiarity with how gmail works.

Most mail providers for a long time now won't accept unauthenticated email, because doing so would allow spammers to use that mail provider to distribute their spam.  Gmail's SMTP relay service mentioned in that article I linked is a bit of an exception, but even that has some requirements attached to it, such as whitelisting the IP addresses from which you'll be sending email.  Some providers will accept unauthenticated email if all of the recipients are within the mail server's domain, but with a service as large as Gmail (as opposed to a corporate mail server infrastructure), even that restriction gives spammers plenty of recipients.

Yes, that makes sense.  It's doubtful that Reflect has its own email account now that I think about it. Satisfied
