Resolve syncing issue with Gmail and Outlook/Office 365 in a few steps
For the longest time, I had issues syncing my Gmail accounts to Outlook. I would enter all the account and password information in Outlook, I’d get the green light and assume everything was good-to-go. But, every time I opened Outlook, I received a password error. This drove me crazy, and after months of performing all the tasks suggested by Microsoft and Apple, I resorted to Safari mail. The error was due to a long time glitch with the 2-factor verification in Gmail. I realized today that there is finally a work-around. It’s called an “app password”.
