Prepare your Gmail or G Suite account for connecting to Outlook and Office 365
This article describes the process for connecting your Gmail or G Suite account to Outlook and Office 365.
Before you can add a Gmail account to Outlook, you'll need to Enable Gmail to be connected to Office 365 and then Import Gmail to Outlook. The most common reason Outlook will fail to add a Gmail account is a missing or incorrect app password.
To use an app password with Gmail, you have to first turn on 2-step verification, and then obtain the app password. Once you have an app password you can use that in combination with your username to connect to Gmail.
