I have set up a couple of gmail accounts already in Outlook. Both of those accounts had different configurations for set up even though they were both gmail accounts.
I am trying to set up another gmail account through Outlook 2016 and keep getting all kinds of messages depending on my configurations. Can connect to incoming server, repeat of password, etc. Below is a list of things I have done so far to no avail.
Changed gmail settings to enable IMAP (disabled POP) I want to read it on difference devices-I should mention I have no problem with set up on cell.
Allowed for less secure apps
Checked and unchecked the need for authorization for both Incoming and Outgoing servers (and also checked one but not the other & reverse)
Gmail for IMAP is 993 for Incoming
Gmail for Outgoing I have tried both 465 and 587 (depending on which selection it matches)
Have used every combination of selection available: None, SSL, Start, Auto (I abbreviated these-not sure the exact spelling of selections)
Restarted my computer several times.
The email address is listed in my navi bar as EMPTY email but does not show up in my Outlook account files with the other ones.
I have tested to see if emails go through and they only come through on my cell phone Outlook and not on my computer.
My computer is new but I used it to set up the other gmail outlook accounts.
Spend 6 hours to no avail in one day and additional hours on other days.
Have Googled all the online advice I can find and have done everything 'I think' the internet has suggested.
I like using Outlook for my Gmail because all the accounts show up in one place and there are better features offered with Outlook.
Any suggestions from the community that I have already tried?
