Trouble Connecting Windows Mail



I am trying to connect my gmail account to Windows mail. I used the
directions from Gmail and Windows mail using both POP3 and IMAP. Neither
works. I get this message using POP3. Can you help me?
Thanks, Barb

You will get that error message if you enabled SPA,
which Gmail doesn't support. Go to Tools, Accounts,
select that Gmail account, Properties, Servers, uncheck
the box for "Log on using Secure Password Authentication."
