Outlook access to Gmail account

Hi

Even though the IMAP access is enabled I can’t manage to configure access to a Gmail account from Outlook 2016

Any clues ?
Thanks
Yann

I believe that Gmail considers Outlook to be an "unsecure app" so you need to enable those, too.
Look at Steps 13 and 14: https://oit.colorado.edu/tutorial/gmail-configure-outlook-windows

In fact it works if I also enable the following Outlook option : "Require authentication (SPA) "
