Greeting To All,

I am running Outlook 2016 in Gmail under the following conditions:

1. I am using 2FA
2. I am using app password

PROBLEM:

I am unable to login to my gmail account. It continually cycles through authentication, asking me to provde User Name and password but never logs in. I have researched this extensively and practically all of the solutions being offered include enabling "Less Secure App Access" feature in Gmail, which is not a viable solution due to Google disabling this feature on May 30, 2022, which is coming up fast.

So my problem is how do I successfully login to my Gmail account without enabling the "Less Secure App Access" feature?

I would appreciate any insight that anyone can offer. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Rob
