I have multiple times tried to create my Gmail account on windows live mail.

I have already been on Gmail and enabled IMAP and less secure apps. 

I have double checked my password by logging in on another device.

I have manually input the account settings:

  • Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server - Requires SSL
    • imap.gmail.com
    • Port: 993
    • Requires SSL:Yes
  • Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - Requires TLS
    • smtp.gmail.com
    • Port: 465 or 587
    • Requires SSL: Yes
    • Requires authentication: Yes
    • Use same settings as incoming mail server
  • Full Name or Display Name: [your name]
  • Account Name or User Name: your full Gmail address (*** Email address is removed for privacy ***). Google Apps users, please enter *** Email address is removed for privacy ***
  • Email address: your full Gmail address (*** Email address is removed for privacy ***) Google Apps users, please enter *** Email address is removed for privacy ***
  • Password: your Gmail password


ALL I GET at the end of the day is: The server has rejected your login. Please verify that your username and password are correct.

I'm at my wits end
