I would also make sure you've told Python to enable TLS on the connection
as I don't believe Google supports unsecured authentication.

Thanks Kevin

The method you posted below is what I’m using, google tells the app to
go pound sand.   I suspect the key is that app password portion of the
post you point out.   I’ll try that in the AM.  

The part that does cause me some pause is IBM i is happily sending email
with that account with no issues.
