    Can't Add Gmail Account to Outlook 2019


    Whenever I try adding my gmail account to Outlook, it keeps looping and asking me to enter my email/phone number again and again. I changed the password on my gmail account and Outlook wouldn't receive my emails. It asked me to reenter the password, but then it sent me into this loop. How can I add my gmail account to Outlook 2019?

    :)

    GUIDE:How to transfer contacts from Microsoft Outlook to Gmail

    I'm sitting here in the office, its the end of the year in the school system, and several employees transferring to alternative counties. With this it brings loads of transferring contacts to take with them from their company phone. Well, this one in particular sparked a guide idea. So here it is, How to transfer Outlook contacts to your Gmail account.


    Step 1: Sign in to your outlook account.
    step 2 In the top left hand corner click File > Import/Export > Export to file > Browse to desired place to save your file > export. Be sure you export the file as .csv (comma separated values)
    Step 3 Log into your Gmail account
    Step 4 Select 'Contacts' In the subsection you will see a 'Import' button on the right-hand side. Click it.
    Step 5 Browse to the location where you saved it > Open it > Click Import.



    I would have provided pictures, but I use neither Outlook or Gmail. Hope someone somewhere gets some use from this. *Toast :toast:

    Gmail IMAP on Outlook 2019

    If some of you folks would take the time to actually read the user posts you might resist making comments about "just google it" or "read the instructions". I have looked for a solution to this problem for several months and can provide a few details:
    • The issue is becoming widely discussed by many users with the same problem - it's not confined to just a few people. The MS web sites contain many posts.
    • The problem seemed to begin in May 2019
    • It appears to be confined to Gmail on Outlook 2019
    • It isn't clear if it's a Microsoft issue, or a Google issue, or both.
    • It is not a problem when using a client such as Thunderbird, which I have installed and use - the Gmail account was an easy (trivial) set-up. For me, Gmail continues to work on Thunderbird without issue.
    • There are many suggested fixes - enabling IMAP is a given, changing port numbers, server names (e.g, imap.gmail.com to imap.googlemail.com), the use or non-use of 2FA, app passwords, allow less-secure apps to run, etc. I have tried all of these singly or in various combinations.

    For me, the problem started a few months back when Outlook puked up the Gmail settings and would not proceed with re-installing the account. I continuously received messages that it could not find the IMAP server - the fault code is noted in a couple of messages above.
    Initially I thought I had re-mediated the problem by doing an on-line repair of MS Office (Pro Plus, 2019). This meant re-activating Office, Project & Visio, which I do not want to do continuously. I was able to set-up my Gmail account easily, and thought the problem was resolved. This lasted about a week.
    Now, after a system restart, I can generally set-up Gmail again easily, without repairing Office - just as some of you suggest that this is all that is necessary. It may last for a day or two, but frequently only a few hours.
    I'm not willing to give up on 2FA.
    I am cutting away from Gmail so I'm not going to obsess over a solution any longer. For the limited number of Gmail I still receive I can manage with Thunderbird or by browser.
    If this isn't an issue for you, that's great. Happy days. But don't discount the issue as being one of user failure to follow instructions.

    Peace

    For Sygnus21: It's enabled on my account, disabling it seemed to be the root cause of Janice Reid's issue. I could try turning it on and off and might give that a spin in the next day or so. I really should be working :/
