Hello Nikhil,

After turning on 2FA and setting app password, the mails were getting triggered (For Forgot password and Email Template).

The steps were as follows:
→ Login in to your Gmail account (registered in Mendix). Go to Manage my Accounts
→ Then go to Security turn on 2 Factor Authentication and set app password (which is just below) it. In App Password select Email and Windows Computer from drop down list and click on Generate. We get a 16 digit code which we need to paste in SMTP settings password field.
→ Save it and Test

  3. Password: Your Office 365 Password.
  4. Port Number: 587 (With TLS)
