My company uses a Google Apps hosted email service. They've added me into their system, and I am trying to set up my email account. I've tried creating the email by adding it's SMTP server to another gmail account (under the add alias option of settings) but I keep getting an error. My employer said this may be because they require 2FA, even though I'm using an App Password. They recommended trying another email client to do this, but I'm not sure which one to use. I've tried Outlook, the Mac mail app, and Spark. Here are the details I have about the SMTP server:

SMTP server (i.e., outgoing mail): smtp.gmail.com

SMTP username: Your full Google Apps email address (me@company.com)

SMTP password: Your Google Apps email password

SMTP port: 465

SMTP TLS/SSL required: yes
