    // This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
    // See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

    // Starting May 30, 2022, Google will no longer support the use of third-party apps or devices 
    // which ask you to sign in to your Google Account using only your username and password.

    // Instead of authenticating with your GMail username/password, a GMail user can create an App Password
    // and then login using their username/app_password.   It's literally the same, except it allows a GMail
    // account owner to isolate passwords to specific applications.

    // The Gmail account owner would first need to make sure she has 2-Step Verification setup for her account.
    // Note: The 2FA verification is not a factor when authenticating with an app password. The 2FA is required
    // to setup app passwords in the Google account console.  See Sign in with App Passwords

    // After the GMail account owner has setup his app password, he simply uses the app password instead of his GMail account password.

    // For example:
    var imap = new chilkat.Imap();

    imap.Ssl = true;
    imap.Port = 993;

    var success = imap.Connect("imap.gmail.com");
    if (success == false) {
        console.log(imap.LastErrorText);
        return;
    }

    success = imap.Login("user@gmail.com","srnyyvqajocnsvdp");
    if (success == false) {
        console.log(imap.LastErrorText);
        return;
    }

    console.log("IMAP Success!");

    // For SMTP..

    var mailman = new chilkat.MailMan();

    mailman.SmtpHost = "smtp.gmail.com";

    mailman.SmtpUsername = "user@gmail.com";
    mailman.SmtpPassword = "srnyyvqajocnsvdp";

    mailman.SmtpSsl = true;
    mailman.SmtpPort = 465;

    success = mailman.SmtpConnect();
    if (success == false) {
        console.log(mailman.LastErrorText);
        return;
    }

    success = mailman.SmtpAuthenticate();
    if (success == false) {
        console.log(mailman.LastErrorText);
        return;
    }

    console.log("SMTP Success!");

}
