Need to enable 2 factor auth and app password on gmail.

Then you get a special one time only password for the app.

If you google gmail, app passwords and 2 factor there are how-to's out there.

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.
