So this is a lengthy description but I’m having an issue adding another account to my main gmail.  I’ve created a Gsuite account and I created alias emails within my account there.  I took one of those emails to the add another email section on gmail and I put my name the email and hit next step but afterwards it’s telling me to enter an SMTP server and a password to that email I made and I have no clue what password to put there because I’ve never had a password for an SMTP server or there’s no password for this and I’m just very confused.

The SMTP password is the same as your web password, unless you are using 2SV.  
Use smtp.gmail.com, port 465, SSL or port 587/STARTTLS.
 
If they are true aliases (nicknames), use your full primary email address as the username and that account's password.
If they are additional user accounts (with separate mailboxes), use the address and password for that account.

I have been using the "send email as..." function on gmail for years and yesterday it is begun bouncing my sent emails, saying "You're sending this from a different address or alias using the 'Send mail as' feature. The settings for your 'Send mail as' account are misconfigured or out of date. Check those settings and try resending." 
When I go into the settings it is asking for a password smtp , I can sign into both accounts no problems but can't seem to enter the correct password on the settings screen?
Any ideas?

I am also getting a similar issue.  I have been sending to smtp.gmsil.com  for years with Thunderbird.  It now says I am not sending from a Google app.
My password (via Mac keychain) , which I have *never* changed is rejected and it asks for a new password.
I type in my *only* password (working via browser connection) and it is rejected.

Having the same issue, and it only happens with one of my contacts (that I know of). Every time I send a message to her, it bounces back with the same error. Doesn't happen with any other email recipients.

Same here. One G-suite alias is working fine, the other wouldn't authenticate SMTP.
Anyone with a solution?  So much for the G-suite trial...

I ran into this out of the blue as well. My password hadn't changed, yet it didn't want to authenticate all of a sudden. I changed my password multiple times, just in case, and it didn't change anything.

I didn't have 2FA turned on, so I turned it on and created an application-specific password. Once the application-specific password was supplied, everything started working again.

Might be worth trying if you're running into this and you know the password is correct and you have less secure access turned on.
