Add new account. Enter email. I keep getting the "Internet Email" dialog asking for the password. Then I get "Your IMAP server wants to alert you to the following: please log in via your web browser" Did that. No difference.

gmail settings: POP is off, IMAP is on. Less secure devices OK. Password confirmed a billion times.

I have authorized the device.

If, instead of seeing your Gmail messages in Outlook, you get an error message along the lines of "Your IMAP server wants to alert you to the following: please log in via your web browser",  Go to your Gmail account and check that Allow less secure settings has been set to ON, and then do the steps again to add your Gmail account to Outlook.

I'm glad to hear that, so you enabled Google’s two-step verification.
