Unable to configure gmail account in Outlook 2016

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.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
