I currently use Outlook 2016 as my mail client on my PC to access a couple GMAIL accounts via IMAP. It has been working great for a couple years. Just last week it stopped working. Outlook started prompting me for the password for the Gmail account and will not connect anymore. I can still access the email on my phone and via a web browser. I attempted the follow so far with no sucess:
- repair the account in Outlook
- remove and re-add the account in outlook
- turn off less secure apps in Gmail Add 2 factor authentication in Gmail and an app password.
Each Time Outlook pops up a window asking me to sing into my account, I click Next. Then it prompts for the password. I enter the password and click Next. I think get this window and click allow:
After I click allow I get this message:
How do I get this to work again?
