- For the email provider, click on Gmail (not REST API or 0Auth2).
- Under Email, enter the alias email address. Under Username, enter your primary (master) email address.
- Go to your Gmail account to turn on 2-Step Verification (if it's not on already).
Create an App-Specific Password for Outreach
- Log into your Gmail account and click on your Avatar on the top right of the screen. Click on the "My Account Button".
- Under the "Sign-in and Security" settings, found on the left hand navigation page, find the section titled "Signing into Google".
- Click into "App Password". Under the "Select Apps" dropdown menu, select "Other (Custom Name) and write "Outreach". An app-specific password will be generated for Outreach. Highlight the password and copy it.
- Go back to your Outreach mailbox settings setup and enter the app-specific password that you generated from Gmail into the password field, then press enter. Enable sending and syncing and save your changes.
