Cannot connect a new GMail Account into Outlook 2010. Yes have turned on the "access for less secure apps" on the GMail account.
Anyone any suggestions?
Thanks

Are you trying to do it by pop or IMAP? And have you enabled the appropriate one in the gmail settings?

Thanks for your help. Eventually found the very detailed instructions on line.
Am used to the simplicity of the iPad - add new GMail Account - email address and password - done!

Most of the problems with that happen when people dont have their email setting right in Gmail. You have to Log into your Gmail account an go to your settings page. Under the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab make sure POP is enabled. After that its a simple task to set it up in Outlook, no different to any other email account.

Just adding to the above, its actually googles own security blocking, just tried on mine, and it advised gmail was blocking.
