Hey Guys, I finally got this working. I'm not sure if it's a wordpress bug or a plugin form bug. I host my own website and I also have my email setup according to my domain name versus email@example.com
Well after hours of playing with the configuration I tested using my personal email to do the smtp authentication and submit my emails via the gmail servers. This worked. The only problem was that all the emails were being sent to me from my personal email address and from the default form configuration you don't get the email address submitted. So I simply added the entered email into the message body.
I'd like to include other headers but wasn't really sure how to get the other headers using the pseudo code for additional parameters.
