Geary set up won't take my password

I have downloaded and opened email client 'geary' but when i try to configure it , it will not accept my password. Message tells me to check my address and password. I have even changed my password and I can access my email from chrome.

Gmail? Likely due to Google account changes, try setting up 2FA and using an application password.


OK, Thanks, I'll try it, is it just gmail or am I better off somewhere else, e.g. yahoo?
