Alpine gmail SMTP connection refused

If you're setting up your gmail accounts on alpine, and you keep getting an error like Can't connect to gmail-smtp-msa.l.google.com,25, it's because you're using the wrong format. Very irritating, since it looks like you're doing it right.

I had success, ultimately, with something like smtp.gmail.com/submit/user=<your_email@address.com>/novalidate-cert.
