Trying to use googles SMTP

Im trying to use googles smtp settings but they dont work?
Im using
smtp.gmail.com as the smtp server.
and the email and password as username and password.
But for some reason I do not get the confirm email when I am supposed to setup Discourse

Using Discourse with free GMail would be a violation of their ToS. Don’t do it.

Are you on G Suite?

Okay, then does anything interesting turn up when you troubleshoot?

Why not use something like Sendgrid, it’s cheap and their free tier is very giving. Another option is Amazon SES, I think it’s like $0.01/10k emails sent.
