    For a normal IMAP connection you need the server name, the server port, the protocol (TLS or STARTTLS), a user name and a password.

    However, some providers like GMail and Office365 switched to OAuth which requires an interactive login in a browser, often with a two-factor authentication.

    Please check the settings in the GMail account. Try connecting with a different email client (mutt, Thunderbird, ...). 

    RapidMiner only supports the classical username/password authentication.
