Within Gmail there is the option to Check mail from other accounts (using POP3):
Well we have had our rogers emails "sent" to our gmail account this way successfully for now 4 years.
I changed my rogers email password this past weekend and just realized several days later that gmail wasnt checking the rogers mail account successfully. So of course I went into the settings and entered the revised password but still not luck. And I noticed while in the settings it was the yahoo server showing.
Doing some searching I found the new settings https://www.rogers.com/customer/support/article/email-setup
I have no idea how I got by all this time w/o changing the servers and using the app password.
So I did all that and things seemed to be fine but after awhile I could see in the gmail settings that it times out and hasnt been able to check successfully. I re-enter the password and all is good for a time and then again the timeout. Any ideas? Can I apply a new app password and see if that helps?
Given the intermittency of the email connection issue you're experiencing I would definitely recommend applying a new app password. I'm glad to hear though that you were able to get it at least partially working. I haven't used this feature myself but I do know that in the past there have been scattered issues with some email programs not being able to process the email from other accounts. Can you ocnfirm for us which email program you're using?
Thanks for the reply. Gmail

This is what happened overnight (as seen within the gmail settings):

How does this work ie must one first delete the previously named PW that shows on the App Password page?
It kinda works.......eventually but it isn't unusual to see this within gmail "Accounts and Imports":
