This is usually caused by IMAP or POP3 being disabled. I assume in your case that IMAP is disabled in your settings.


In Gmail, there is another setting called “enable less secure apps” which needs to be on if one is to use Gmail with the Outlook software client.

Okay, so I ended up deleting the account from the list of accounts in Outlook and starting over but now I have a new issue. When it gets too the spot that talks about testing account settings it keeps wanting my password even though I already entered it when setting up my account and I made sure that the boxes for remembering and saving my password were checked, but when I enter on ok it keeps circling back wanting my password. I even went into the task manager and told it to end the task but nothing happened. Any ideas what could be wrong and what I can do so that I can do whatever I need to do next in this process? The account shows up in my list of accounts in Outlook which I assume is a good sign...
