Login box pops up in outlook again and again for gmail accounts : Fix It

Login box pops up in outlook again and again for gmail accounts : Fix It

In outlook, I have noticed that after configuring a gmail account, the sign in box pops up and asks for the password everytime and even after entering the correct password also, it pops up again and again. So many users think that it's an issue with outlook but NO, it's not the issue with outlook. There is a setting in your google account which needs to be changed to fix this issue. Sometimes, it pops up the following error message also:

your imap server wants to alert fix

To fix this issue, just follow the steps below:
  • Open your web browser and sign into your gmail account.
  • Now open the Sign-in & Security page of google account, click here to open: CLICK THIS LINK
  • If two step verification is ON, then turn it off.
  • If "Allow Less Secured Apps" option is OFF, turn it ON.
turn on allow less secured apps
  • Now you may close your web browser and open outlook again, it will not popup for password.

Easily Fix iCloud and Outlook Error: The set of folders cannot be opened

outlook and icloud sync issues
After the launch of Office 2016, the users of office 365 who installed the Office 2016 upgrade faced so many issues with iCloud and outlook. Contacts were lost, calendars stopped working and outlook launching issues took place. I found two error messages "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened" and "Cannot expand the folder. The set of folders cannot be opened. The information store could not be opened". Both of these error messages appeared because of icloud (sometimes this type of error message pops up if the pst file is corrupted and to fix the issue we can repair the pst file or reconfigure email address in a new outlook profile). So many users are still facing the same issue but the worst thing is that if you call Microsoft support then they deny for any support for icloud issues (you got a good luck if any techy geek handles your call  and resolves your issue in 10 minutes) and Apple support sends you back to Microsoft.
