    @Ruchi Baldwa,

    Have you checked the Digital Exchange?

    Note: The GMail API is only accessible if your using a Google Workspace (i.e. company) account. It is not available for personal GMail accounts.

    Yes, you can read and send emails from a Gmail account using the Gmail API. The b2b API meaning is a powerful tool that allows you to access and manage Gmail accounts programmatically. Here are the general steps to get started:

    1. Set up a Google Cloud Project:

      • Go to the Google Cloud Console.
      • Create a new project or select an existing one.
      • Enable the Gmail API for your project.
    2. Create OAuth 2.0 Credentials:

      • In the Google Cloud Console, navigate to the "APIs & Services" > "Credentials" section.
      • Click "Create Credentials" and select "OAuth client ID."
      • Choose the application type (typically "Web application" or "Desktop app" if you're developing a command-line tool).
      • Set up the OAuth consent screen with the necessary information.
      • After creating the credentials, you'll get a client ID and client secret.
    3. Obtain Access and Refresh Tokens:

      • Use the client ID and client secret to authenticate your application.
      • Follow the OAuth 2.0 authorization flow to obtain an access token and a refresh token. You'll need to request the necessary Gmail scopes for reading and sending emails.
