If you are using Google Workspace for your accounts, you will need to enable a few settings in your Google account before you can connect them to Instantly:

  1. Enable IMAP settings

  2. Enable 2-Step verification

  3. Create an App password

    These steps need to be completed for every email account you want to connect to Instantly.


Enabling IMAP settings

We created a video that shows how to enable IMAP in Gmail / G-Suite:

You can follow these steps:

1. On your computer, open Gmail.

2. Click on Settings in the top right corner

3. Click on See all settings

4. Click the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab

5. In the "IMAP Access" section, select "Enable IMAP".

6. Click Save Changes


2-Step verification method

Watch this tutorial for enabling 2-Step Verification and creating an App Password.

Instructions for enabling 2-Step verification:

1. Go to https://myaccount.google.com/u/1/security and click on "Two Step verification".

2. Click GET STARTED

3. It will prompt you to login again.

4. Set up your phone for Two Factor authentication

Creating an App password
