Entering a password in SMTP set up

I am working in Filemaker Pro 12 to set up gmail for sending emails from the database.  In the SMTP set up box, the password entry box won't allow me to simply type in my gmail password. I get a warning pop up that says "the specified field cannot be found."  I click the "specify" box which prompts me to indicate a field from the layout.  I have tried creating a password field in the layout I'm using, but that has not worked.  I also don't care to do this as it makes no sense to have an email password visible on a record.  None of the other fields in SMTP set up have required me to specify a field for entering information.  I have been able to type in everything else, such as email address, server port, etc. Please let me know what I am doing incorrectly with password entry.  Thanks
