Hi Efrat,
If Outlook doesnt ask for the second factor when you add the account, you need to create an app password in Gmail settings and use it.  This should take you to the correct location to create an app password: https://myaccount.google.com/apppasswords

FWIW, New builds of outlook 2016/2019 should ask for the second factor.

Yes Parmi, I get error messages - can you see them in this thread?

TAU created this gmail account, and added 2 step verification. I have no problem to access this account in the browser. I also easily connected my "normal" @gmail.com account to view it on Outlook at home.

I want to add TAU mail account to my Outlook 365 Home on my PC at home.

I'll add here again the error messages I received:

Thanks for the screenshots. that is a certificate error which can come for any IMAP profile if you are adding it with wrong server address. it is not related to 2 way verification.
