How to use Google SMTP server if I have 2-Step-Verification and see a "password incorrect" error?


Step 1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

Step 2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Security.

Step 3. On the "Signing into Google" panel, choose App Passwords.

If you don’t see this option:

  • 2-Step Verification is not set up for your account.

  • 2-Step Verification is set up for security keys only.

  • Your account is through work, school, or other organization.

  • You’ve turned on Advanced Protection for your account.

Step 4. Select the application and device you want to access (You can select ‘’other’’ and name it ‘’Mail Me’’).







Step 5. Copy the password, go back to the SMTP server configurations, and enter it in the ‘’Password field’’.
