How Do I Connect My Gmail or Google Workspace to Outreach?

RocketReach Outreach feature supports composing and sending emails from your Gmail or Google Workspace account to your contacts right from our platform. 

1.  Setting Up Your 2-Step Verification In Gmail

To complete the setup for this process you will need to provide your password for the Incoming and Outgoing Mail settings. This password is 16-character app-specific password provided by Google.

  • Open your Google Account.
  • In the navigation panel on the left-hand side, select Security.
  • Under 'Signing in to Google,' select 2-Step Verification

At this point you will be asked to verify it’s you via a second step, most commonly using Google prompts on your cellular device or computer.
