Microsoft Office Outlook Asking for Credentials Repeatedly

Vote 0 Votes

Today I got this error when I opened Microsoft Office Outlook.

---------------------------
Microsoft Outlook
---------------------------
Your IMAP server wants to alert you to the following: Please log in via your web browser: http://support.google.com/mail/accounts/bin/answer.py?answer=78754 (Failure)
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

I am seeing (experiencing) this issue for quite some days.

Microsoft Office Outlook is repeatedly asking for credentials , even when they are correct!!

Any guesses guys!!!

  • [ After getting what the error message says and reading the support page, I resolved this issue ]

    This is an issue when you only read your emails through POP or IMAP and not log in to Google with the same Account.

    This is an issue with Google.

    Google thinks that fetching emails with email programs like Microsoft Office Outlook is automated,
    and hence you have to prove that you are a human accessing just your emails.

    To resolve this issue, please log in to your Google account at http://www.google.com/ with the credentials of the troubled and once you have successfully logged in then try fetching the emails for that account from Microsoft Office Outlook.

    Everything should work just fine now.

    Thanks
