Cannot configure Outlook 2010 on my gmail account

Hi,

I tried to set up my gmail account on Outlook 2010 with no success. I checked the settings in gmail and see IMAP is enabled. I tried both the auto process and manual from various site searches I did, followed the instructions, but it didn't work. I know this is user error but I don't know what else to do. Has anyone configured gmail on Outlook successfully? Thanks!

Yes exactly those steps on this site; https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/173...

You did this, right? -- Note that POP access needs to be enabled in Gmail for these settings to work

Hi,

I did see POP access enabled in gmail.It says, POP is enabled for all mail that has arrived since 12/10/09

I get these 2 error messages.

Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): The connection to the server was interrupted. If this problem continues, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).

Send test e-mail message: Cannot send the message. Verify the e-mail address in your account properties. The server responded: 530 5.5.1 https://support.google.com/mail/?p=... e9sm4494549qkb.23 - gsmtp

I get these errors when trying to configure manually.

Thanks!

Hi again,

I checked it again but still not connecting. I am curious if anyone else successfully did this? Someone said I might have to drop security on Gmail in order for it to work but I don't want to do that if that is the only way. Does anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks!

Which did you do? Enter the information in the initial screen? Or, did you run through the manually configure? Did the test email send and receive?

Hi,

I tried both options entered the information in the initial screen and that didn't work. I tried the manual configure and that didn't work either. I wasn't able to send or receive anything.
