May I suggest allow less secure apps to access your gmail account. Also you can use apps generated password while 2 steps authentications enabled.
Links for how to do so in the same link you provided.
Would you like to know more about ISLAM ?

my suggestion would be to not use gmail for your board.

simply create a email account at your hosting panel.
use that email for everything to do with your board. set it to not use smtp.
'
in almost all cases that will work just fine.

then, if you want to use your gmail account to receive your board emails simply forward all board emails to your gmail account.
