So, I've used MS apps for a longtime, and have been using Outlook2010 as the main client. For simple email it's ok, and keeps the peace at home (I'm not the only user).

 

Gmail stopped syncing last week - and I got an alert saying that login had been prevented for less secure apps like 'Outlook'.

 

 

 

Trying to find info on WHICH VERSION of Outlook is interesting. I'm guessing 2010 and older is no longer supported... but wondering where there might be better info.

As above. Less secure apps work fine once you've allowed this in your gmail account settings.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.
