Has anyone been able to use the OSX Mail.app with Google 2 Factor Authentication?

I generate a one time application password in my Google account and it works for a while, but usually am prompted for a password before the end of the day or the next day for sure.

Anyone have success?

I've done that... still prompting me for a password. Do you have it working fine?
Yea I have two step auth on and the application specific password worked ok. Make sure to enter the password it gives you not the account you login to the website with.
