Outlook stopped connecting to Gmail

  ursula12345 13:13 29 Jun 2016

I've been using a Gmail business account in connection with Outlook for ages and all of a sudden an Outlook message keeps popping up asking me to "Enter your username and password for the following server". No matter how often I do this it doesn't recognize it.

Can someone please help asap as I need this to work in order to run my business?

Appreciate your help!

If you go to gmail via your browser click here and click on Gmail at top right - can you log on to your email account?

Also you haven't said whether you are using POP or IMAP Gmail.

I can log on to the Gmail account via the web but not via Outlook. Also, I use IMAP.

I would start by checking the settings in your Gmail account via the web - make sure IMAP is selected and it hasn't reverted to POP etc.
