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

Any clues ?

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.

I believe that Gmail considers Outlook to be an "unsecure app" so you need to enable those, too.

Thanks CompProbSolv but unfortunately that option was already enabled

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