Gmail setup on outlook 2010

Hi All,

I have a machine that will not connect to a Gmail account, we just get the message that the server is rejecting the username and password even though they are correct.

We can login to the webmail ok.

When I look at the gmail connectivity we are seeing these errors - Application / device sign-in attempt (prevented)

I have checked the account and the 2 step verification is turned off

I have tried everything from changing the password to trying pop and IMAP with no effect.

At the moment POP is enabled and IMAP is disabled.

thanks
Ryan

Hi

I have tried this and I get the message

Account access enabled

Please try signing in to your Google account again from your new device or application.

I then try and create the outlook profile again but I get the same error message.

can we not turn this security off?

Check on gmail.google.com

Settings -> Account and import -> Other google account setings -> Security -> Access for less secure apps.

You may have to enable this to get access.
