How to Connect a Gmail Alias

You can use a Gmail alias if you set up the email as an IMAP/SMTP email instead of a gmail email.

Boxward Choose SMTPIMAP

Use your alias as the email, the actual account email as the username, and your app password as the password like so:

IMPORTANT: You need to use an App Password, not the login password.

To do that:

  • Make sure you have 2-Factor Authentication active here.
  • Then create an App Password here (Be sure to keep this App Password value as it will be used!), with App: Mail, Device: Other, and Custom Name: EmailWarmup

Here are the values to use: 

Email: [your alias email]

SMTP Username: [your main account email address]
SMTP Host:
SMTP Port: 587
SMTP Password: [your 16-character App Password]

IMAP Username: [your main account email address]
IMAP Host:
IMAP Port: 993
IMAP Password: [your 16-character App Password]
