Outlook 2013 cannot logon to gmail any more

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/09/20

A problem on a PC I did not use often: as of a sudden, Outlook 2013 could not access a gmail account any more.

Luckily, Outlook showed me this message in a dialog box:

Please log in via your web browser: (Failure)

This directed me to [WayBack] Use IMAP to check Gmail on other email clients – Gmail Help

In turn that pointed to [WayBack] Let less secure apps access your account – Google Account Help

Finally that one indicated the configuration page changed to

This is similar to the cause of “the user name or password for is incorrect” – iPad, iPod or iPhone with iOS < 7

It all comes down to gmail forcing OAUTH2: [WayBack] tls – Why doesn’t outlook 2013 meet modern security standards? – Information Security Stack Exchange

It looks like gmail finally understands Outlook Calendar entries

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/12

For a very long time, gMail did nothing with Outlook Calendar entires.

So I had to view at the message source, then translate them to Google Calendar entries myself.

Content-Type: text/calendar; charset="utf-8"; method=REQUEST
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64


As of late, they seem to be processed into Google Calendar compatible entries. Nice!
