Can someone help please.
I use Outlook on M365 for my email on my pc. It comes from my Gmail account. I prefer Outlook as its easier to use.
For some reason the email has stopped working and I get a pop up box saying that I need to enter my password ?..but the password is already there.
Earlier today after an upgrade I used my ipad and had to enter my password and then got a 6 digit number to add as extra authentification. This all worked fine.
Do I have to this with Outlook/Gmail on my pc.
The Gmail program is working fine and it didnt ask for two part authentification..I can see it now..but every time I try to get into Outlook it won't let me. I have tried to re-start the pc but that didnt help.
If someone can help I would appreciate it.
Just one thing..pls be aware you are talking to someone who is NOT tech savvy.
I hope someone out there can help.

@mucky1957Dont worry follow simple steps here with the screenshots I am providing.
First get ready your Gmail Account - There is by default setting in Gmail is for Imap is turned OFF.
By Generating password - Click on "Done" Save the password as you will require again to use it and have to visit again to do so while connecting to Gmail to Outlook
Convert your Outlook account to a Gmail
It's time to add your Gmail account to Microsoft Outlook now that you've completed the necessary steps in your Gmail account.
Congratulations! You can now access your Gmail account from within Outlook.
Make Sure Your Google Workspace Data Is Safe
Gmail data is now spread across two accounts: your primary Gmail account and an Outlook email account. Despite the convenience, your data may still be at risk of being hacked. Your Gmail (as well as other accounts integrated with Outlook client) are at risk even if you have MFA enabled because hackers can still access your email messages.
When you use Spanning, you can rest assured that your Gmail, Drive (including Team Drives), Calendars, Contacts, and Sites will all be protected from data loss.
Good Luck - Do not Forget to Cheer Me up to guide more users - This took me around 1 hour to post.
