Please ensure you check SSL/TLS while configuring Gmail too with your full email and Gmail password..

As well verify below Gmail security settings:

First open the following link and ensure you are logged on to the same account as you are setting for the printer.

Within the Sign-in & security section click on Signing in to Google and ensure that "2-Step Verification" is set as "Off".

Within the left pane click on Connected apps & sites and ensure that "Access for less secure apps" is set as "ON", otherwise the verification will fail.

Within the left pane click on Device activity & notifications, witin the 'Recent security events' section click the Review events link and ensure there are no blocked connection attempt (it will be highlighted in red) , if there is any alert follow the steps on screen to ensure there is no block for that device.

Once you are done run a test for the outgoing user profile and check if the problem been resolved.
