Google blocks e-mail send sign-in from Orbi

I filled out my gmail server credentials for security event email notifications, resulting in Google sending me an email saying the sign-in attempt from Orbi is blocked because it is a "Less secure app", and Google will "continue to block sign-in attempts from the app you're using because it has known security problems or is out of date". I don't want to enable this by configuring my account to allow "...access to less secure apps". Has anyone else encountered this and solved it?

Thanks

There are some other suggestions here... Does this help?  https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-WiFi-Routers/emailing-logs/td-p/989946

 

I use another SMTP mail server since Google has restrictions on who can use theirs.
