ok. thanks for the link.
i think i am finding that you have to also put the "2 step password" in the SMTP section as well as in the email address password section. for some reason this was not very intuitive but i think it seems to be working at this point.

arg. not so sure i got this fixed.
sure is a confusing one in mac mail this one.
i wonder if i should in fact have to put the code into the password section for each of my accounts and in the outgoing server section as well...

I started having this problem of not being able to connect to the gmail smtp to SEND mail from Apple Mail about 3 weeks after setting it up and having it work fine. I have SCOURED the internet looking for solutions. What has finally worked for me is alternating between enabling the 2-step verification and turning it off on my gmail account. First, it won't work, so I'll set up 2-step verification, enter the "special" password into my Mail preferences, then it will work. Later, it will not longer work, so I will disable the 2-step verification and then it will work. Go back to the beginning loop and start again.
