    Trying to add Google mail to Mail and get error 0x80040154

    I'm trying to add a google account to Mail and when I choose Google I get the message,

    'something went wrong error 0x80040154'

    Has anyone had any success getting this feature to work? Or has anyone else found a way to solve this error?

    Since posting this I did read a suggestion about adding it under IMAP/POP option instead of choosing add GMAIL. I tried this but since my Gmail has secure settings the test email was blocked. There is an option in Gmail setting to make the account less secure, but I don't want to do this.

    I did a clean install of Windows 10 and I will probably not try again anyway. No error when I opened it.
