We can't add our GSuite account to my personal Gmail account (Check mail from other accounts: POP, IMAP and SMTP)

  • I'm using POP server: pop.gmail.com and Port: 995 with SSL ON
  • I'm 100% sure my login and password are correct
  • I did enable POP in my Workspace Gmail account settings and the admin of the G Suite admin account also confirmed POP and IMAP are enabled and Less secure app access is also enabled..

I have tried every suggestion and solution from this "help center" and I am not able to add my GSuite address as an alternative to my personal Gmail. I have tried using pop.gmail.com, port 995, SSL and use your full G Suite email address, including the domain, as the username and immediately get

Server denied POP3 access for the given username and password. Server returned error: "[AUTH] Username and password not accepted.

The GSuite after login admin, POP access is enabled and Less secure app access is also enabled.

You login to the admin panel, click on users, click on a users name, then security, and turn off the login challenge for 10 mins - then they can add their GSuite as a pop account to their personal Gmail.
