Gmail is one of the most used email platforms across the globe but it is not without its technical flaws. Users often ask why my Gmail not working on outlook. Such a problem may arise when some security conflict occurs. Often, Outlook asks for a username and password from the user repeatedly. Here are the steps to solve the issue: Log in to your Gmail account. Select on 'See All Settings' option. Choose the 'Forwarding and POP/IMAP' tab. Check whether the IMAP settings are set to 'Enabled'.
The default settings of IMAP are usually enabled but if not, it may cause this type of issue. Otherwise, Gmail may not work with Outlook
