I got a reply back from someone at Google with this explanation.
Is Outlook able to reach your mail at Gmail after you “X’ out of that window?
Google has stopped allowing logins with 3rd-party apps, like Outlook, using only ‘user' and ‘password.’
"To help keep your account secure, from May 30, 2022, Google no longer supports the use of third-party apps or devices which ask you to sign in to your Google Account using only your username and password."
"Email software, like Outlook 2016 or earlier, has less secure access to your Gmail. Switch to Office 365, Outlook 2019 or newer, or any other email software where you can sign in using Sign in with Google.”
If Gmail won’t let you download, the web portal should still work with ‘user' and ‘password.’
I have a gmail account tied to my Outlook account is what started this thing.
