Hi, I was using Outlook 2010 with my primary email and wanted to view my firstname.lastname@example.org emails for my G-Suite business account on Outlook but I ran into security block email notifications. I went ahead and upgraded to Outlook 2016 because I thought my old Outlook was not secure enough or I skimmed the email not fully understanding WTH Google wanted from me.
Anyway, Outlook 2016 again works fine with the primary G-Suite email but the sales email still won't send or receive even with IMAP enabled from the Google settings console.
The error messages with 2016 are pretty vague "something went wrong" but below is the message I still get emailed from Google about a less secure app... What's up with that?
Google just blocked someone from signing into your Google Account email@example.com from an app that may put your account at risk.
Less secure app
