Have you enabled sending of email through less secure applications on your gmail account ?
https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps

Be careful, this does NOT work if your Gmail account has 2-factor enabled.
I use a separate gmail account for this sending of mails 1) to keep it out of my primary account, 2) my primary account has 2-factor enabled.

You can still use the 2-Step-Verification if you create a specific gmail app password. https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185833?hl=en
