Navigate to Configuration->OAuth2. Click on the "Create new" button and then select "Outlook" as the type of the app. Use the Application Id and Client secret values you got from the Azure portal. The redirect URL must be exactly the same one you used when registering the application
How do I implement secure OAuth access on Outlook DESKTOP so I can POP my multiple email accounts from gmail?
Google recently sent an email that they are shuttig off access to 'less secure apps' (LSA). and that beginning Sept 30,2024, Google Workspace accounts will only allow access to apps using OAuth Password-based access.
I have ~10 email addresses configured in Outlook DESKTOP (not 365) from business, personal, and nonprofit/volunteer groups that all POP mail from Google/Gmail.
I am NOT a technical person, but it sounds like this is something that will all stop working shortly unless I configure it differently.
In simple terms, can someone explain step by step, how to enable OAuth in Outlook DESKTOP? I am using the version included in Microsoft Office LTSC Standard 2021. (Outlook LTSC MSO (16.01.14332.20621 64-bit) Thank you!
Hi @Dave S ,
According to my research, Google has indeed been moving towards more secure access methods and is encouraging users to use OAuth 2.0.
As for Outlook 2021, it’s been reported that the implementation of OAuth 2.0 is not clearly documented. OAuth 2.0 is an authorization framework.
In the meantime, you could consider using app passwords for your Gmail accounts as a workaround.
Use an App password: If you use 2-Step Verification, try signing in with an App password.
