    Gmail in Outlook 2010 not working

    New update:

    Ok, I found the solution. It's located at

    I had to turn on access for less secure apps!


    Google considers Outlook 2010 a less secure app? Since when? What does this mean to my overall security settings?

    Anyone with any help here would be greatly appreciated.

    I went back to a pre-Outlook setup, and re-installed Office from scratch.
    I set up one POP account in Outlook, just to gain access to the program screens.
    I set up my GMail account -- again -- using the same login info that works for GMail online


    Outlook refuses to log it in

    The settings I am using (and have since forever ago) are

    GMail: 993 SSL 587 TLS

    What the heck can I be doing wrong here?????

    I have used Gmail through Outlook for it decided to not work.

    I changed my Gmail password (security issues), and I log in online fine. I changed the password in Outlook, and the server keeps rejecting it.

    I deleted the Gmail account, rebooted, and set it up help. Outlook keeps telling me that the connection to the server was interrupted.

    I have another GMail account in Outlook that is working fine.

    What could be wrong here, and how can I fix it?
