Getting error message and Outlook prompting for password repeatedly.

Task 'syssoftacademy@gmail.com - Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC92) : 'Your e-mail server rejected your login. Verify your user name and password in your account properties. Under Tools, click E-mail accounts. The server responded: -ERR [AUTH] Web login required: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/78754'


  • Did you follow everything on the support google page first? – Dylan Rozendom Sep 29 '16 at 9:49
  • Yes... I follow the same thing and done – Mark Wales Sep 29 '16 at 10:01
  • it could be possible that you have IMAP disabled in your Gmail settings. Go to gmail -> settings -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP -> Check if IMAP is enabled. – Dylan Rozendom Sep 30 '16 at 6:44

Finally solved the problem after a long discussion:


Actually, the problem is that I was trying to connect Gmail with Outlook again and again before turned on "allow less secure apps" resultant Gmail blocked from accessing the mail server.

Now, I have successfully configured my Gmail account in Microsoft Outlook.

Thanks for the community to spent their time on solving the problem.
