How to connect Gmail SMTP

Written by MarcelloLast update

Teyuto is not a Google App, which means it is recognized as a "less secure app" or a third-party app. To connect your Google (Gmail or G-Suite) account securely, you need to take the following steps:

1: Enable Less Secure Apps/Set Up 2-Step Verification

  • To connect your Gmail SMTP account:

    1. Go to your Google Account.

    2. On the left navigation panel, click Security.

    3. On the Signing in to Google panel, click 2-Step Verification.

    4. Click Get started.

    5. Follow the steps on the screen. Learn more.

2: Create an App Password for your Google account:

  1. Login to your Google Account.

  2. On the left navigation panel, choose Security.

  3. On the 'Signing in to Google' panel, choose App passwords.

  4. If you donโ€™t see this option, 2-Step Verification may not be set up for your account or may be set up for security keys only, or your account may be through work, school or other organization, or you may have turned on Advanced Protection for your account.

  5. At the bottom, choose Select app and choose Custom.

  6. Type in a name for the app (e.g. Teyuto) and click on Generate.

  7. Copy and save the generated App Password, which is the 16-character code in the yellow bar on your device. Use this password for connection.

Attention. Make sure, that you've created and copied The App Password. If you'll miss this step, the integration won't work.

3. Connect the SMTP account in Teyuto

  1. Open the Settings/Custom SMTP section in the Teyuto dashboard. 

  2. SMTP server:
    SMTP port: 587
    Secure (SSL/TLS) is required: Tick the checkbox.
