If you receive an error while connecting an inbox, here are a few troubleshooting steps to perform to get your inbox connected.

If you are attempting to connect a Google Workspace account to the platform, you may come across a few errors preventing you from getting your inbox connected. Let's go over all the specific types of errors that can get thrown and how you can resolve them.

To learn how to get your account set up for Warmup Inbox before performing these troubleshooting steps, please follow our guide on how to do this here.

Note: When performing these troubleshooting steps, we strongly suggest users open up an incognito browser window and sign into the Google account you are attempting to connect to the platform, then perform these troubleshooting steps. The direct links we provide to these Google settings pages can sometimes auto-redirect to other Google accounts you are signed into so this prevents you from accidentally enabling these settings under a different account.

SMTP error Error: Invalid login: 535-5.7.8 Username and Password not accepted. Typically, a 535-5.7.8 error indicates that you did not enable Less Secure Apps on the inbox side of your email address. If you see this error, navigate to this link below and double-check that this setting is enabled, and try connecting again.

If this setting is enabled under the inbox and you are still experiencing this same issue, double-check you are utilizing the correct login information for this Google inbox.

You might also need to add the inbox using the SMTP/IMAP option instead of the Google Workspace integration.
