Hello UI-Path Team I have a Drought in the uipath Smtp mail activity

Hello, so the dought is if we are not given access like a less secure app in Gmail security is it possible to do automation in SMTP. if its no y and any alternative solution are there for that and explain why?
Because we are using Gmail for our company to send mail so they are saying we can’t give the less secure app because of its security issues. so any alternative solution is there like we have a lot of accounts in our own company mail account is it possible to give the less secure app for the particular mail account is there any security issue will happen is it secure or not?

If any know this please let me know it is very useful for me
