Thanks. It seems to be working., but the information on the less secure lever screen, made it sound that i am compromising security. Do all outlook users have this setting? Is there a way to keep a safer environment?

Nearly all now do have to do this, you are not compromising security, it is a setting that Google have to allow apps to then connect to your account.

You still need all your security credentials ect to connect.

Glad it is now resolved and thank you for allowing me to help you today. My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen then submit before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
