    Why on earth Ms made the whole thing more complex by getting the automated account set up procedure so difficult to bypass I have no idea -- the manual settings IMO always work better anyway.

    @jimbo, Google will only allow secure apps from October 30th for gsuite (maybe gmail to follow), I think only Outlook 2019 and 365 conform as they interface with Google for the extra authentication stuff - G Suite Updates Blog: Limiting access to less secure apps to protect G Suite accounts
    Anyway I wont take this any further off topic.

    I still get this message that OL can't sign me in to IMAP.

    The message is "Task 'Synchronizing subscribed folders for [email protected].' reported error (0x800CCC0E) : 'Outlook cannot synchronize subscribed folders for [email protected]. Error: Cannot connect to the server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

    This error message seems to indicate that there is something more to this problem than the set-up instructions. There are references on line for error code 0x800CCC0E, so I need to investigate those.

    So, for those telling me to read the instructions: I have. Repeatedly and continually. The Google app and authenticator are installed on my Samsung telephone. This is not a case of me not being able to read or lack of experience with Outlook and Gmail. As I pointed out earlier, I have used both for many years.

    The problem was solved by doing a re-install of Office. The account was enabled.

    I had the same problem since several days.
    No probleme with the Iphone, but no way with Outlook 2019.


    I solved it by using the application generated password by Google.
    It's generate a 16 letters password, you have to use in Outlook in imap mode, without other specification.

    For Office (Outlook) 365...


    Out of curiosity I just tried adding my Google email account to Outlook 365 android app and it tool less than 5 seconds to complete. All the Outlook app did was ask if I wanted to use my Google email account and that was it.

    Just used the instructions here - Add a Gmail account to Outlook - Outlook to add my g-mail account to my PC's Office 365 Outlook and it also took less than 5 seconds and is up and running.

    Again, the is with Office (Outlook) 365. Can't speak for other Outlook versions.

    As I stated earlier in the thread, I had to reinstall office. After I did that the set-up worked fine. However, since that time the Gmail account vanished, wouldn't install again, then a few days later it installed again without issue. At the moment it's fine.

    I wish MS would do that for 2016. I have to do this every time I want to add a gmail account.
