Hello @Emile_Koslowski .
This block only works with GMAIL, or it's just an example? I'm trying to configure an AWS SMTP with this block, but without success.

First off, thanks for a very informative post!
Secondly, does anyone know if it is possible for me to connect to my Gmail account if I have two-factor authentication enabled?
With MFA enabled, use an app password: Sign in with app passwords.
Just noticed that Google is making Less Secure Application access a thing of the past at the end of next month:https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6010255

I've added some additional notes on setting up App Passwords in this blog post:https://www.quickintelligence.co.uk/google-smtp-and-imap-to-break-gmail/
Thank you for sharing this!
I'll update the article accordingly.
