Use SMTP Email Service From Google

If you are in need of email services and don't have your own mail server, one of the options you can use as a G Suite customer is Google's SMTP mail service.

Once you have enabled 2FA for your G Suite account, find the latest instructions from Google's help section on creating App Passwords on your account. 3.
