Can't seem to connect other gmail accounts to new Google Workspace account

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I set up a Google Workspace account today to use a custom email with my squarespace site. 

I shudder to think of checking multiple gmail accounts, so I'm trying to add my other gmail accounts to the new one.

I can't get it to work - I always get a message that says "Authentication failed. Please check your username/password.

I've also tried adding the custom email to an existing gmail account. I can add other gmail accounts, but I can't add the custom email from the workspace account. 

Has anyone else had this problem?

When I started using Google Workspace, I ran into a similar issue trying to add my personal Gmail to my new workspace account. It turned out that Google has some pretty strict security measures for adding accounts, especially when it comes to custom domains.
