So a wee while ago Gmail stopped working via my Outlook. Couldn't be buggered to find out why so I have been using webmail (Literal cancer)
I have now tried to get it working again, No luck.

 


Colour me stupid but my password is correct, I allowed for less secure sign in and all the settings are as I would expect, All the server settings are as they should be (AFAIK)
i get this bounce reply every time: Your IMAP server wants to alert you to the following: Please log in via your web browser

I follow the link fro that bounce email and it says this:

 

 

Account access enabled

 

Please try signing in to your Google account again from your new device or application.

 

 

 



Still doesn't work.

No idea what to do apart from throw the laptop off a bridge at this point!

I must mention I do have my own domain configured with Gmail myname@mydomain.co.nz 

Any help is appreciated.

Cheers

Check your google account security settings and make sure that the option to allow less secure apps is enabled.
Had a customer with the same issue today.

Tried creating an app-specific password?

Yeah I’ve done that and no joy. I also tried to create an app specific password. I can’t find googles official support topic for outlook on their site either.

Weird I say. I’m clearly done something wrong or what not but for it to work then not puzzles me.

Was using imap idk if that’s been disabled and office 365 outlook forces you to use a webmail sign in with google. It’s beyond me right now.

Just double check that less secure app setting.
I’ve enabled it in the past and then gone back there and it’s off again, within minutes.

I did notice that, I was trying it for a solid 30 minutes, then left it. 
Came back 5 mins later, Turned it on without generating a failed login attempt first, then went to try again and Nope!

Will try again tonight and see how it goes. Where can I find googles official setup info?

Cheers
