    I wonder if anyone can help me please? I'm trying to set up Gmail in Outlook 2016 for MAC, without much suucess , I may add. I have tried unenabling google security but it still doesn't work. I am getting the following error message that I've included as a screenshot. The password is right because I can still login to gmail via the browser. Screen Shot 2017-01-08 at 16.36.28.jpg

    Use apple mail.
    Outlook caused me all sorts of trouble.
    Apple mail doesn't aways work either.
    Then use the browser to login.

    I think if my only email provider was Gmail I'd use the web interface.

    You should, however, be able to get it working in Outlook 2016.

    I successfully use gmail (business account, non-gmail address) on Outlook 2016. My setup was straightforward but I've had some issues in the past. They were usually some POP setting that needed to be turned on in the gmail settings. Sorry I can't be more specific but I found this info in gmail's help for setting up for Outlook. It definitely works, just requires a setting or two changed.

    Under more settings... outgoing server, you select the "outgoing server uses same settings"

    That is one common problem people overlook
