Some third-party email providers, like Gmail, Yahoo, and iCloud, require you to change some settings on their websites before you can add these accounts to Outlook. Enter your name, email address, and password, and click Next. • If prompted, enter your password again, then select OK > Finish to start using your email account in Outlook. If you need instructions for adding an email account using advanced settings, see. To update your email settings such as incoming and outgoing server names, see.
Outlook won't accept my password If Outlook won’t accept your password and you know you’re using the password for your email account, you might have an email account that requires additional security. Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud, and AOL accounts all use two-factor authentication to help verify that you’re the person trying to access your email account. To add your email account to Outlook, you’ll need an app password.
This is a different password than your regular email account password. The steps to obtain an app password are different for each email provider. Select your provider in the drop-down for instructions.
Gmail does allow you to add your account to Outlook without setting up two-factor authentication and using an app password, but you must turn on a setting that allows 'less secure apps' to connect to your account. We do not recommend this setting. We recommend turning on two-factor authentication and using an app password. To turn on two-factor authentication and get an app password, use the following steps.
• Go to from your browser, then select the Google apps icon in the upper right corner of the screen. • Select My Account. Under Sign-in & security, select Signing in to Google.
• Under Password & sign-in method, if 2-Step Verification is OFF, click the > next to OFF. Otherwise, skip to step 4. • On the first screen, click CONTINUE. • If prompted, enter your Gmail password and then click NEXT. • Enter your phone number and select whether you want to receive your verification codes by text message or a phone call. Then click NEXT.
• Enter the code you received and click NEXT. • Click TURN ON to finish setting up 2-step verification. • Return to the previous screen by clicking the left arrow at the top of the screen next to 2-Step Verification. • Under Password & sign-in method, select App passwords. • Enter your Google password and then select Sign in.
At the bottom of the next screen, select Mail and Windows Computer from the drop-down lists, then select Generate. • Google will display an app password for you. Copy this password (without the spaces) and enter this password when Outlook prompts you for a password. • Go to the website from your browser and select the settings icon in the upper right corner of the screen. • Select Account info > Account security. You may need to sign in again. • If Two-step verification isn't turned on, you'll need to do that before you continue.
Then select Manage app passwords. • Select Outlook Desktop from the drop-down list, and then select Generate. • Yahoo will display an app password for you. Copy this password (without the spaces) and enter this password when Outlook prompts you for a password. • Go to the website from your browser and enter your Apple ID and password.
