Customer Question
I would like to...

I would like to set up Outlook 2016 but I can't get past a certain point in the set up process... when I am asked to enter my gmail password, a dialog box that pops up and prevents me from going further.

Technician's Assistant: Are you logged into your Gmail account on any other devices?

Hmmmm on my phone, yes

Technician's Assistant: Do you have security questions or a phone number on file to help reset your password?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of.
