what password are you using? Did you generate an app password?
I'm not using Google Accounts myself, but the procedure is obviously
the same as for Yahoo, where I'm using app passwords for Evolution and
"Create & use App Passwords
If you use 2-Step-Verification and get a "password incorrect" error
when you sign in, you can try to use an App Password.
Go to your Google Account.
Under "Signing in to Google," select App Passwords. You may need to
sign in. If you don’t have this option, it might be because: 2-Step
Verification is not set up for your account. 2-Step Verification is
only set up for security keys. Your account is through work,
school, or other organization. You turned on Advanced Protection.
At the bottom, choose Select app and choose the app you using and
then Select device and choose the device you’re using and then
Generate. Follow the instructions to enter the App Password. The
App Password is the 16-character code in the yellow bar on your
device. Tap Done." -
