I am using outlook 2003 for my email, that access my gmail account.

I just arrived taiwan from USA, my outlooks does not works, it keep ask me the uername and pw.   it said remote server reject my login.  I think gmail have some security control on the on line version, that I may have login into there first and do some reset.  but I do not know how.

Login to gmail via web interface and check if you received email about suspicious activity from google, follow the procedures mentioned in the email.

I figured it out.  in the gmail.com (I always use this as my browser to get my online gmail reading. etc).  there is a setup > configuration,  with the gmail + (what ever they forced you to change to), there is a country code list.  I changed to match with where I am now.  and save the change.  I then go to on-line gmail account, reply an email. and sent it.  logged it out, and then all the sudden, my outlooks start to works.

thanks anyway.

I figure it out myself.  so I am going to give myself the credit, but only rated as B.
I will see if I can repeat my solution when I go to the next country next month.  if still works, then I will be happy.

thanks
