  1. I am having problems setting up my Gmail Account in Outlook 2007.

    I have followed your steps repeatedly for the POP setup and keep getting the same problem.

    When I go to Test Account Settings, I keep getting a Popup Window headed up – Enter Network Password and the Server Field is populated with pop.gmail.com, my username “hgfowles” and a password (already entered) – when I click OK, the window just pops up again.

  2. I might add, the Gmail Account works on both my iPad and my iPhone as well as being able to access it direct through Internet Explorer so the account details are correct.

  8. Outlook email clients are gaining popularity due to higher level of futures in email service like business contact manager,manage emails in off-line mode and secure data handling. It also has disaster management like Inbox repair tool which has ability to handle minor cases of emails corruption in MS Outlook.

  9. The configuration will be like:
    Incoming Mail (POP3) Server – (SSL):

    pop.gmail.com

    Use SSL: Yes

    Port: 995

    Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server – (TLS or SSL):

    smtp.gmail.com

    Use Authentication: Yes

    Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587

    Port for SSL: 465
    (it is advised to use SSL instead of TLS
    Email Address:

    Put your complete email address
    (e.g. username@gmail.com or username@your_domain.com)

    Password:

    Put your (Gmail) password or the password you have successfully used in browser

    In the outgoing server tab of the settings window: Turn on require authentication and select “same settings as incoming server“

  10. The configuration will be like:

    Incoming Mail (POP3) Server – (SSL):
    pop.gmail.com
    Use SSL: Yes
    Port: 995

    Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server – (TLS or SSL):
    smtp.gmail.com
    Use Authentication: Yes
    Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
    Port for SSL: 465

    it is advised to set/use SSL instead of TLS

    Email Address: Put your complete email address (e.g. username@gmail.com or username@your_domain.com)
    Password: Apply your (Gmail) password or the password you have successfully used in browser

    In the outgoing server tab of the settings window: Turn on require authentication and select “same settings as incoming server

    Hope this will solve your query.

  11. If I follow your instructions for setting up gmail, will i configure new gmail account so that all communications to/from people appear to be coming from my current imap email (Outlook 2010) through my internet provider? I do not want people or businesses to think I have changed my email address after 15+ years. through my outlook (cox cable provider),

  12. Sorry Matt I don’t know the answer, I just know I have Windows 8 and outlook 2007 and none of the answers in this thread work. Hopefully someone can help us both.

  13. This might happen if you have 2 step verification turned on. In that case, you will have to use Google Account Settings to get an app password that you enter into the Outlook instead of regular password.

  14. If you create an IMAP account, all your email is mapped so you can see old messages. If you are creating a POP account, select Enable POP for ALL Email (refer first image above in the article). That way, Outlook will download all the email present in your inbox.

  15. I have solved this problem….. log into your gmail account through the web.
    Go to settings (the little wheel on the top RHS and from the drop down select settings.
    Select the Accounts and Import tab
    Under change account settings, select Other Google Account Settings.
    Scroll down to Signing in Box
    Under Access for Less secure apps change to “allowed”.
    That fixed it!
    Apparently gmail does not think outlook 2007 has the same level of security as webmail

  16. the configuration goes ok. completed. when I go to NEXT. I get a message from Microsoft outlook that says: The requested operation failed. I receive the test email at my gmail but nothing happens in outlook, what is wrong?

  17. make sure you follow all the advice above re setup including the first piece to enable pop on gmail. The configuration may look complete, but go back into outlook tools, account settings, highlight your new account, click change, and run test account settings – until you get a pass here it is not complete (you will not get a test email in outlook). When mine was finished auto setup it had the TLS settings mentioned above not the SSL.. It also had a tick in the require logon using SPA on the first page

  18. These are just the settings. It does not solve the problem of repeated popups, even though all settings maybe correct.

  19. If you can see test message in gmail, your outgoing settings are correct. What did you specify for incoming email. It should be
    Server: pop.gmail.com or imap.gmail.com
    Authentication type: SSL
    Port: 995

  20. sir i during this process at the time of testing again and again enter network password pop box is appeared how to overcome this is configure this process manuallu

  21. Did you enable 2 step authentication for Gmail? If yes, such popup will appear. In that case, you have to create APP PASSWORD in Gmail using web browser. Then, in the password field of Outlook, type the APP PASSWORD instead of real password.

  22. thnx arun sir for rply but where enable authentication for gmail.. i can’t understand with your answer plz expalin this

  23. Here is the Google help page on how to get the app password. Once you have that, enter it into Outlook password field instead of real password. Let me know if it still creates problems

  24. Thank you for your help Arun Kumar, having struggled with this the App password cured my Outlook / Gmail problem

  25. thank you pettros. some many hours, so many days of rubbish then your factual cure and its sorted in 60 seconds.

  26. i was done all above setting but i cant send the email
    it’s giving send & Received error.

    Please help

  27. Thanks so very much – I have struggled with this problem for such a long time – I cannot tell you! Followed your advice and was up and running in no time. Thanks again. Mwah !

  28. Thank you very much Mr. Arun Kumar. You saved me the price of hiring someone to do what I was able to accomplish with instruction. This was invaluable to me and I’m grateful to you, even if we will probably never meet. God bless!

  29. I am having the same problem as him. It keeps popping the stupid password box back up and I have typed it again and again and cut and pasted it and it still won’t accept it and save it and finish the task.

  30. u are the best Mr after a whole day tryin without any success may God bless u mr

  31. AWESOME!!! You are my hero! This thing has been driving me craaaazy!. Weirdly, I have two other gmail accounts loading to outlook, but they didn’t do that at all. Could not figure out why those would and this one wouldn’t. Thank you thank you thank you!

  32. I am having problem in configure my gmail account in outlook 2007. Main problem is when i configure my account it requires password, but my password & user name is correct. So please help me.

  33. Are you using 2 step authentication in Google? If yes, you will have to get an APP Password from Google Settings and enter it into the Outlook instead of the real password.
    If the above is not your problem, you might try the following:
    Log into your gmail account through the web.
    Go to settings
    Select the Accounts and Import tab
    Under change account settings, select Other Google Account Settings.
    Scroll down to Signing in Box
    Under Access for Less secure apps change to “allowed”.

  34. I have solved the problem of the Enter Network Password popup that keeps popping up …..
    Log into your gmail account through the web.
    Go to settings (the little wheel on the top RHS and from the drop down select settings.
    Select the Accounts and Import tab
    Under change account settings, select Other Google Account Settings.
    Scroll down to Signing in Box
    Under Access for Less secure apps change to “allowed”.
    clicking on “less secure apps’ and “learn more” identifies examples of where this might occur………
    Some examples of apps that do not support the latest security standards include:
    The Mail app on your iPhone or iPad with iOS 6 or below
    The Mail app on your Windows phone preceding the 8.1 release
    Some Desktop mail clients like Microsoft Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird.

    When
    going back to outlook – delete the account you were trying to add and
    start with new account again. This time outlook automatically filled in
    all the setting boxes without having to do the manual settings.
    That fixed it!
    Apparently
    gmail does not think outlook 2007 has the same level of security as
    webmail (the notes on gmail selection identify which other systems

  35. hi i was having problem with configuring my gmail account with outlook, i cant do it please help me

  36. I can assist if you tell me what problem are you facing. Normally, Outlook can set it up automatically if you enable POP or IMAP in gmail using web browser. All it asks is your ID (full email address) and password.

  37.

  38. i am not able to rectify the issue of password issue which is not accepting please help me

  39. THANK YOU SO SO MUCH! Such a simple explanation that has fixed this annoying problem.

  40. I am having problems setting up my Gmail Account in Outlook 2007.

    I have followed your steps repeatedly for the POP setup and keep getting the same problem.

    When I go to Test Account Settings, I keep getting a Popup Window headed up – Enter Network Password when I click OK, the window just pops up again.

  41. Hello friend for your solution plz check your google my account sign-in and security setting
    here you have to check on less secure app option then you will over come from your problem

  42. Task ‘rctilib@gmail.com – Sending’ reported error (0x80042109) : ‘Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).’

  43. This could be wrong port number for smtp. Try 2525 or 587. The encryption type should be TLS.

  44. I have enabled access to less secure apps, I have enabled pop, I have accessed the account from the pc I am trying to setup the mail account, yet still not working, even received a mail stating there was an attempt to log in from this pc etc, yet still can not get access.

  45. My Outlook 2010 used with gmail suddenly stopped connecting with the gmail server after 2+ years of perfect execution. We changed nothing, but did take a 3 month leave from Outlook, using our laptop to connect directly to gmail. Our configuration is precisely what you have specified, and we have updated our password and enabled lesser security. My wife has a separate computer with the same configuration and she has the identical problem. Is there another procedure we can try? BTW we get on line perfectly with IE using Comcast as our ISP. We have Windows 7 and office 2010.

  46. I have the exact situation as BDR. My settings are all correct except Outlook 2010 will not accept authenticate type SSL. It generates an error message saying incorrect authentication and switches to Auto on its own.

  47. I did this on my existing account and it did not work. Mine is an existing Outlook 2010 account that has worked perfectly for 2+ years. Perhaps it works only on new setups.

  48. Excellent. Fixed it for me after half a day racking my brains. Why don’t the experts point you to things as simple as this?

  49. Hello Sir

    i was trying to install outlook for my gmail Id but not able to do that!! please help if posiible

  50. having problem:
    log incoming mail server (pop3).Your email server reject you login.verify your user name and password for this account in account setting.the server responded temporary system error

  51. Thank you so much Jinu Ashraf!!! That advice was God-sent, and has worked like a charm!!!!!!!!!!! I’m indebted to you…… πŸ˜€

  52. Hi, I’ve done everything correct from here. The Test Account Settings was successful. But as soon as I close the Test Account Settings Dialogue box, it says “The requested operation failed”. How to fix this? I am using Windows 7 and MS Outlook 2010

  53. likewise – I have spent weeks looking for this answer – so simple – why is it not more readily available – you are godsend

  54. I always face the problem of incorrect password when i configure the gmail on outlook express 2007. Can any one suggest to me?

  55. This usually happens when you have two factor authentication turned on. If this is the case, you will have to create an app password in Gmail Settings. You will then use app password in Outlook instead of real password.

  56. Send test e-mail message: Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). kindly help ?

  57. Try increasing the “timeout period” in settings->advanced tab. Keep it to something like 4 minutes.

  58. i have problem configuring my outlook

    i did as you have said in this page.when i go to test my account it shows pop up again and again.

  59. Great help until I came to test that it works – a box appears with a picture of some keys on it asking me to type my user name and apssword (that was already typed in !) and then refuses to go away ! It has failed to log onto the incoming POP3 server…

    This is so frustrtaing ! I’ve tried everything !

  60. I have spent the last five hours trying to set up my Outlook 2010 (Win10x64) so that I can connect to my new gmail address. I already have one googlemail.com and one gmail.com address, both running POP3 with no problems at all. I have the same problem that many people here have. The new gmail address works perfectly on Edge or Firefox but I cannot set it up in Outlook. It refuses to accept any of the known combinations of Secure logon SPA ON or OFF = POP 995 SSL ON or OFF = SMTP 465 or 587 = Server Encryption None/TLS/SSL/AUTO , and keeps demanding verification of username and password. I have tried with CATCHA ON and OFF, I have tried with the LESS SECURITY both ON and OFF and I’m now ready to go and find a cliff to jump off….
    There is a simple answer here but it is not any of the previously published answers. Please help.

  61. I have my Gmail account on three Apple devices (all synced). I also want to add my Gmail account to Microsoft Outlook on a Windows 10 laptop. I used to have this set up on a desktop PC which gave up the ghost. I cannot get the settings to accept as Incoming Server ‘pop gmail com’. Help please. Peter

  63. error shows “enter network password”
    i have already enter the user name & password but still its poping again & again

  64. Wow Thanks Arun you made my day after 12 hours of frustration!. I really appreciated your help.

  65. I have follow all the process but till this msg is shown every time ”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)”.

  66. What do you use for the password if the G Suite account has Dual Factor Auth turned on?

    What do you use for the password if the G Suite domain is configured to federate identities to a third party IdP? e.g.- let’s say you’ve configured the domain so that all auth requests go to OneLogin or Okta or JumpCloud… Then how do you set up Outlook to connect to the G Suite user’s mailbox.

  67. I am suddenly having problems with my gmail account in Outlook 2016 – as of today! I am able to access my gmail account through internet, but not via Outlook. I get a message “Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): Your email server rejected your login. Verify your user name and password for this account in Account Settings. The server responded: -ERR [AUTH] Web login required: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/78754
    I have tried everything described here, to no avail.
    Can anyone help, please
    Gregory

  68. i did every thing which is mentioned above but after that some error is showing like”
    Task ‘shiprasharma117@gmail.com – Sending’ reported error (0x800CCC92) : ‘Your e-mail server rejected your login. Verify your user name and password in your account properties. Under Tools, click E-mail accounts.’
