✔ Best Answer
I think GMAIL is not supporting old mail clients anymore. Try upgrading to Outlook 2010 or even 2013.

Hope that helps.

Hello earlpg,

Thank you for your prompt reply. I shall try with a newer version of Outlook as you suggested. Many thanks once again. Have a nice day.

Hello earlpg,

Before changing to a new version of Outlook, I reconfigured my network adapter with IPv6 unselected. Now Gmail works with Outlook 2003.

Kind regards
