    Can not add Gmail account to Windows 10 mail app


    This is the long standing problem with adding Gmail accounts to the Windows 10 mail app.Repeated errors - can not find account information, error code 0x80070490.No IMAP adjustments in Gmail work, no access adjustments work.Tried turning off McAfee firewall made no difference.Was able to add the Gmail account to Mozilla Thunderbird with no problems, a hint that Gmail may be blocked by the Windows 10 email app.

  4. Can not add Gmail account to Windows 10 mail app

    Windows 10 Mail forgets Gmail password almost every day

    Reason

    Windows Mail app keeps prompting for Gmail account password frequently with the "your gmail settings are out of date" message—
    According to a comment on this post . . .

    Potential Solutions

    Based on some quick research there may be two options that may help resolve this. . .

    1. Enable the 2-Step Verification functionality and security feature with your Gmail account and then use the 2-Step Verification to verify and trust the Windows Mail app to have access to your Gmail account
    2. Enable and use the Less Secure Apps functionality by turning that ON and using your usual Gmail account password with the Windows Mail app to authenticate
