IMAP Gmail account for Outlook

Hi

After three hours or so of frustration and annoyance, it dawned on me that I have Google 2 tier verification turned on and then used the unique password to configure my Outlook POP3 account successfully.

When I attempted to add an IMAP account, however, I wasn't so lucky. It won't configure automatically (like Pop3 did) so I've gone to recommended manual settings, used the unique password, inserted the recommended port designations for incoming and smtp servers, but as soon as I attempt to initiate the account I get a popup window: The Requested Operation Failed.

I do want to use an IMAP account, but I'm not sure where to go from here. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

did you go into your google settings online and enable IMAP?


Sign in to Gmail.
Click the gear icon in the upper right, then select Settings.
Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
Select Enable IMAP.
Click Save Changes.
