I'm having a problem connecting my gmail to Outlook 2019 - it won't download emails or sync the account. I'm attempting to set up a new laptop with Windows 10 and several other email accounts have been set up fine; Windows Mail also downloads the gmail account fine but I'd like them all in one place as I've got Outlook from Office 365. My previous laptop is still downloading gmail to Outlook 2016 so the settings in gmail are such that it allows imap.
I get all the way through the automatic setup - logging in to gmail with the 2-step authentication - and allowing it to access my account, at which point it comes up with an error message saying ' Sorry, we could not sign you in to Google - IMAP. Please try again later.'
- most combinations of gmail port numbers and encryption settings (SSL/TLS, STARTTLS)
- turning off 2-step authentication in my gmail settings
- using an app-specific password to login
- taking the gmail account off Mail
- several restarts
- running Windows updates
