Here's the steps to use a personal Gmail account or Google Workspace account to send SMTP notifications from Events2HVAC.

Also, you may need to make sure you have a "strong" password for Google to allow smtp connections from other apps.  Also you might need 2 step verification enabled for some of these steps to work.
