Here's what I see in the log files after enabling diagnostic logging in Outlook 2016:
IMAP: 02:55:21 [rx] 0c1x NO [ALERT] Please log in via your web browser: https://support.google.com/mail/accounts/answer/78754 (Failure) IMAP: 02:55:21 [db] ERROR: "Allow less secure applications is disabled for your account.", hr=0x800CCCE6 IMAP: 02:55:21 [db] Connection to 'imap.gmail.com' closed.
And here’s a screenshot from relevant part of my google account settings, in their web interface:
I only have a single google account.
Is there a way to fix IMAP integration? I really dislike their web interface.
Thanks in advance!
Update: The web interface says “Use your phone to sign in: Off” and “2-Step Verification: Off”
The settings seem to be correct, and I have not changed them for years. Yesterday it stopped working out of the blue.
Outlook’s diagnostic log says it connects OK to the server, here's selected messages:
Connecting to 'imap.gmail.com' on port 993. srv_name = "imap.gmail.com" srv_addr = 22.214.171.124:993 OK Gimap ready for requests LOGIN command sent
