How do you set up email account with Gmail 2 step verification?

I have a client that has a Google apps account has set up two-step verification and its causing problems with setting up an inbound account with the CRM. What’s the solution when the client does not want to turn off two-step verification? I do not see anything in the documentation that addresses this.

You can create app specific passwords for the google account.

These can be used by programs that aren’t compatible with 2FA

Hello there,

I have 6 Google Apps accounts in the inbox and have no problems with the setup. How does it fail?

I did a quick reply to myself after I solved it, but apparently it didn’t show. But, yes, the answer was in creating an app password for Google.
