    Here are the step-by-step instructions to send emails with Gmail / GSuite / Google Workspace mail:

    1️⃣ Go to 'Outreach'> 'Email Senders'. 

    2️⃣ Click on 'Connect Email Sender'.

    Connect email sender

    6️⃣ Generate the App Password and enable IMAP for your Gmail / GSuite / Google Workspace account.

    9️⃣ Click on 'Next' and wait for the confirmation. 

    Once the process is successful, you can find the email sender on the page you are viewing. 

    As you can see, you have options to edit and delete the sender as well. 

    -> You can also add more email senders that belong to different ESPs. 

    Now, the emails you send will be sent from the Gmail / GSuite / Google Workspace mail account that you connected to.

    Troubleshooting - If the above method doesn't work

    👉  If you don’t see an option to turn on 2-Step Verification.

    Some old GSuite or Google Workspace accounts might have got turned off. Don’t worry; you can quickly turn it on from Google Workspace Admin Settings

    👉  If you have generated an app password but are still getting an error.

    Please ensure that you have completed all the above steps from the same Google Account. It is important because Google will often redirect you to your primary user when you try to change settings.

    👉  If you can’t enable 2 Step Verification, here’s an alternative method.

    1️⃣ Allow less Secure Apps in your Gmail Account. Check the account selector icon on the top right of the page to make sure you are using the right Gmail account.

    2️⃣ Allow access to your google account from this link https://accounts.google.com/b/0/DisplayUnlockCaptcha.

    See the /0/ in the above URL? by default, this will allow access to your default Gmail logged-in account. You might want to change it to /1/ or /2/ to allow for secondary Gmail accounts. You can find your account number by going to Gmail.com and choosing your account.

    3️⃣ Make sure IMAP is enabled.

    4️⃣ Enter your email address and password on SalesBlink.

    5️⃣ Enter IMAP host and port.

    For Gmail / GSuite / Google Workspace IMAP host, click here.

    6️⃣ Click on 'Add Sender'. 

    And you are done!
