Due to Google's security policies, accessing your Gmail account from Nextcloud requires additional steps.

 

If you use two factor authentication, you'll need to generate an app password:

  • Visit https://myaccount.google.com/apppasswords from a web browser
  • At the bottom of the page, click the drop-down box labeled "Select app"
  • Choose the option, "Other (Custom name)"
  • Enter a descriptive name, such as "Nextcloud Mail"
  • Click "Generate"
  • Go back to Nextcloud (Mail/Rainloop), and enter your e-mail address and the app password you just generated
  • Your Gmail account should now be accessible from within Nextcloud

 

If you are not using two factor authentication, you'll need to allow "Less Secure Apps":

  • Visit https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps
  • Toggle the radio button "Allow less secure apps" to the "ON" position
  • Go back to Nextcloud (Mail/Rainloop), and enter your e-mail address and Google password
  • Your Gmail account should now be accessible from within Nextcloud
