Combining Gmail with Email Me App

Gmail is a great alternative for sending emails via SMTP. If you have your own Gmail account I completely recommend following these steps to configure it in Email Me App.

1. Google Account

Go to your Google Account Privacy Screen.

2. Enable 2-Step-Verification

Google now requires that you have 2-Step-Verification enabled before you can set up an application password so you'll need to enable 2-step-verification in case you don't have it.

3. Create an App Password

An app password works like an alternate password for your account. It can only be used by the applications you share it with, so it’s more secure than sharing your primary password. You can set up an app password in your Google account. If you’d like to use an app password, you’ll need to turn on two-factor authentication for your Google account first. After that, you can create an app-specific password for Email ME in the security settings for your Google account. To do so, select Mail as the app on the App passwords screen and select iPhone as a device. Note: any time you change your main Google account password, it will deactivate your app passwords as well.
