How to Configure Outlook 2016 to use Free Google App Email with 2-Step Verification (2 Form Authentication)

If you enable 2-Step Verification on your free/legacy Google app account, you need to:

  1. Generate an app password via Google Account Security.
  2. Use that generated app password instead of your normal password when you configure Outlook.

Note that you can use either POP or IMAP as long as you enable them in your Google account.
