Enabling 2 Factor Authentication for Rogers Email and its Effect on Gmail Settings?

Because our primary email account is a gmail account I have it set up so that our family's rogers emails get "sent" to the gmail account so we never need to log into our Rogers email account.

 

The important settings are as follows:

 

Check mail from other accounts:

xxx@rogers.com (POP3)

 

AND

 

Send Mail as 

XX <xxx@rogers.com> 
 
Mail is sent through: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Secured connection on port 465 using SSL
 
Now for better security I am planning on setting up 2 FA on our rogers email account. If I do that will there be any impact on the email settings in gmail as shown above or will the rogers email still keep coming through as has "always" been the case?
 
Thanks for your experience.

All your doing is FORWARDing your Rogers.com email to your g-mail address. No security or login is needed and 2factor has no impact on this. Heck you could forward your rogers email to anyone even your uncle louie and it will still work.

I just wanted to be sure if there would be any effect at all on the "forwarding". Thanks for the confirmation.

As I said I rarely log into our Rogers email account. But I did jut now so as to setup 2 FA for it. But for the life of me I cannot see any tab or link re "Account Security" or the like.  What am I missing?

@21Rouge , as discussed in the following thread, Rogers/Yahoo don't have 2FA.
