Gmail wont accept connection without TLS support and the specific port 587 for it. Read it here. Execute the following -

sendemail -f -u files -m message -t -s -o tls=yes -a ~/temp/folder/*pdf

If this doesn't work, then provide your SMTP username and password with -xu and -xp options respectively.
