What I have in my .mh_profile:

send: -nomime -msgid -server smtp.gmail.com -port 587 -tls -sasl -user 

What I have in my .netrc:

machine smtp.gmail.com login address@hidden password my-passwd-here

And no need for a 'credentials:' line.

Note that's sufficient for 'send', and I use fetchmail/procmail rather than inc,
'man inc' says it supports '-user username', so a .mh_profile entry:

inc: -tls -sasl -user address@hidden

and a .netrc entry:

machine pop.gmail.com login address@hidden password norms-passwd-here

should work.
