viewing gmail in MS Outlook RRS feed

  • Question

  • I keep getting the following window when  I try and view gmail in outlook

    Your IMAP server wants to alert you to the following: please log in via your web brower: https//support.google.com/mail/accounts/answer/78754 (Failure)

    everything worked fine in the past.  I did get a suggestion from google to make my gmail access more secure and I changed  'allow less secure apps' from off to on but I have since changed it back.  Do I need to change something in MS outlook or my gmail account?

  • Hi Rjayson,

    According to my research, this issue is likely related to security standards. In my opinion, as Microsoft Outlook has a different security standards From Gmail, you may need to follow the suggestion from Google to turn on "Allow less secure apps" for your Gmail account.

    Hope this is helpful to you.

    Regards,

    Perry
