Outlook 2016 can't find a secure connection to a google-hosted account

Q: Outlook 2016 can't find a secure connection to a google-hosted account

I installed Outlook 2016 on a Windows 10 PC.  I installed my hotmail account and it works fine.  I am trying to add my other email account which is my email address at a domain name owned by me and hosted by Google, as in: [email protected]  I get an error message: "An encrypted connection to your mail server is not available. Click Next to attempt using an unencrypted connection."
 
That doesn't sound safe, but I tried it.  I clicked Next and got another error: "We are having trouble connecting to your account.  Verify the settings below and make changes if necessary."  The "setting" the message is referring to is the email address.  I verified that it is typed accurately and clicked Retry.  I got the same error message, but this time everything was greyed out except the Next button.  So I clicked Next.
 
The next screen gave me two choices: 
"Outlook.com or Exchange ActiveSync Compatible Service - Connect to a service such as Outlook.com to access email, calendars, contacts and tasks", or  
"POP or IMAP - Connect to a POP or IMAP account"   
 
I tried POP or IMAP but it asks me for the incoming mail server and the outgoing mail server.  I don't know how to find those.  So I went back and clicked on "Outlook.com or Exchange Active Sync Compatible Service."  That led me to a screen that asks for the mail server.  I tried  https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox" which is the website that Google takes me to when I use google mail to access this account.  It didn't work.  I got the error message: "Log onto Exchange Active Sync mail server (EAS): The server cannot be found."  So I tried "mail.google.com" and got the same error message. 
 
How do I get Outlook to find an encrypted connection to a google-hosted account?
Is it safe enough to use an unencrypted connection?
If I use an unencrypted connection, should I use "Outlook.com or Exchange ActiveSync Compatible Service" or "POP" or "IMAP"?  
How do I find out the incoming mail server and outgoing mail server?

Preferred Solution: Outlook 2016 can't find a secure connection to a google-hosted account

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Outlook 2016 can't find a secure connection to a google-hosted account

Sounds like you are using Google Apps for Business with a domain name you own.
 
There are special steps you need to follow to get Google Apps to work with Outlook. I believe there is a special Outlook connector, I believe it's called Google Apps Sync, that you'll need to download and install; there are also some configuration changes you'll need to be make in your Google Apps configuration as well.

I have just set up a Gmail account and it works fine when accessed via the web. I tried all day to include it under my Outlook 2016 with no success. Imap is enabled under Gmail settings but I keep getting the following message when I test the account settings

'Log onto incoming mail server (IMAP) server failed.'

I have searched the web for a solution and have tried 993 and others for the port number and set SSL for the type of encrypted connection with no success.

Will someone please help me get my Gmail account set up under Win7 Outlook 2016?

When I set up my Surface Pro 3 in 2015, I linked my gmail account to Outlook 2016. The other day, a log in pop up box started coming up prompting for a password in Outlook. I tried everything, but nothing worked, so none of my work emails were downloading. I tried to delete the account and start over. While the account is showing up, it isn't completely gone, and when I try to delete it a prompt comes up that says "the default data file cannot be removed because it is your default delivery location. After you have selected a default delivery location, your current file can be removed."

I'm just trying to re-establish my gmail account on Outlook 2016, so my work emails are being sent and received through Outlook. Make sense?

Any help would be most appreciated. I'm extremely frustrated and would be happy to take my computer somewhere for someone to help me, but don't know where to go?

I understand its Free vs Paid product comparision but anyway
 

A:F-Secure Internet Security 2016 vs Panda Free Antivirus 2016

If a security soft ranks amongst the top performing AVs, it won't matter much if it does function correctly or causes problems on your specific system.

From lab test results F-Secure has an edge over Panda during testing the past few years in terms of detection (although higher false positives).

From users, it seems more prefer Panda - which is one of Neil Rubenking's (PCMag) favs (that don't mean much - but that is just my opinion).

I'd say, in terms of overall protection, Panda has a slight edge; it might protect your system in a few instances that F-Secure will not.

Hello Everyone,

I am setting up my email accounts in Outlook 2016. I always do a manual setup and on my outlook.com email accounts, I use Exchange ActiveSync.





My questions are this.

What is this new option of selecting Office 365 and when would I use this option?When I did select the Office 365 option and pressed next my outlook would crash, any fix?What is the best selection to choose from when setting up my outlook.com account that would be great for automatically syncing with my calendar etc. on outlook.com or apple etc.?

Thank you very much for any help and assistance.

A:Outlook 2016 Manual Email Account Setup, Office 365 option? & Crashes

Manual setup for outlook.com accounts is absolutely unnecessary, Outlook 2016 does that automatically in a few seconds.

That being said, if you insist in doing it manually the correct option is Exchange ActiveSync. Office 365 option is for so called workplace email accounts, Azure AD / Office 365 for Business or Enterprise users. You select that option only if your organisation uses Office 365 and you want to set up your workplace email in Outlook 2016.

Ever since Office updated to 2016, Outlook will not remain connected to my network. The network cuts out, then connects, then cuts out again, sometimes for extended periods, and I cannot receive email unless I close and restart the program.

Any idea why it does that? it usually happens when I first try to enter a website, it gives me this message in the lower corner of the browser and it only enters the site after 10~ seconds or so. The site then loads for the next several hours(if entered continously) and then it 'forgets' the site and does so again.

It also happens when using IE(except it doesn't display the message due to the browser's UI, it simply takes several seconds before loading said site).

This started happening after I format my pc.

The issue seems to be primary with Google. I have tried Chrome, Mozilla & Internet Explorer - all new and updated. Chrome & IE are 100% factory, no addons at all. Google is either not loading or only partially loading. Meaning only some of the graphics load. Gplus just goes wacky :P

These errors are primarily associated with Google. It seems to be "security" related? I have some things in my event viewer I do not understand under security. Though nothing looks horrible. For the last 2-4 days google & its services (Youtube, G+ and others) have been acting funky. I did general maleware scans - Several (nothing bad all removed). Is it a virus/hack? Did I do something wrong? Thoughts? On occasion other websites give me issues.

Thank you and good holidays!
 

A:F-Secure Internet Security 2016 VS Norton Security 2016

In my opinion, Norton gives you a better protection. He has SONAR( Behavior protection), very good feature.
Fsecure uses Bitdefender engine but isn't the best AV according AV Comparatives.
Norton is light, has strong firewall, good signatures and cloud reputation + Sonar protection for zero-day threats.

According to all sources that I could find on-line, it appears that rules are part of pst file.

However, this does not happening in my case.

I use outlook 2016 (part of MS office 2016) and have several accounts linked with this ? From my ISP (POP), Hotmail, yahoo, Gmail. I have rules only for account from my ISP.

Recently I deleted my Hotmail account, removed it from my outlook, deleted associated ost file. Then I had second thought and re-activated this hotmal account the following day. Added this to my outlook. To my surprise all rules vanished. Not a single rule remained. I did NOT have any rules setup for Hotmail account. Even column details for message folders (part of setting) got changed.

I decided to check further. Copied my pst files to another computer which had same version of outlook installed and has exactly the same setup.

Now I added some rules on my 1st computer. Checked the 2nd computer. The same rule appeared there. That means pst file does not contain rules.

So, Where are they?

Hope someone can help me. I am lost!!
Thanks

This is complicated by the fact the computer in question operates in spanish, and i don't know what the corresponding error in english would say. But we can't sign in to a google account on that computer. Firefox, chrome, and i.e. all put up warning screens. The one for firefox says in spanish, 'connexion no esta verificada'. It says you've asked firefox to make a secure connection to www.google.com, but the security of the connection cannot be confirmed. It says someone could be trying to supplant the site, and recommends not continuing.

We are scanning with eset. I tried removing gmail notifier, that didn't help. There is an option in firefox to continue despite the warning, but we chose not to do that. We've gone into the google account normally accessed on that computer and changed it's password.

What's going on here? Any thoughts?

I have to decide which to choose from. Since my friend is giving me additional license for F-Secure since he recently bought 3 keys which unfortunately has no reason to use the other 2, so he said he'll give me one once I bought a new laptop, but my new laptop came with a free 1 year free subscription for McAfee internet security. So I have a dillema on which to use first. Should I use McAfee or accept my friend's giveaway.

PS: The McAfee that came with my brand new laptop isn't pre installed. They just gave me this prepaid card I think which says OEM card. And the card says I have to activate the key first on McAfee website before I could use it. Second, I used the 6th month trial of Mcafee on my desktop. Tried it for a few months, then uninstalled it because it slowed my PC down. I think the trial now is expired so I can't try it on my laptop first.
 

A:F-Secure SAFE vs Mcafee Internet Security 2016

Prepare for the mcafee hate storm.

So in order to prevent such thing ill lay the terms now.
Please only discuss good points of one or another solution. Any post that represents solely mcafee hate will be deleted.

I personally used mcafee and see no problem with it. Fsecure however did cause me some slight slow downs but both are good and have decent protection.

If you have one year then use that. If you have two systems then use both mcafee and fsecure.

Hello everyone!

today I recieved an email from my internet provider that they provide free f-secure safe for each and every customer. before I am going to install it , I have some questions for people who use / or have used F-secure. Is it worth to install? does it provide good security and how does it perform on the system? thanks!
 

A:F - Secure Safe 2016 - Is it worth to install? Would you recommended it?

I use f-secure search provider. It uses the google search engine, but does not display the results with all the google dressings.
In fact, it is pretty plain and straightforward. It displays text results with text only, and image results are on a separate tab.
I like that a lot.

Visio files are received as attachments in Outlook 2016. Visio Viewer 2016 and IE11 are also installed on Windows 10 (1607).
Previewing the Visio file (VSD in this case) is successful. However, when you try to open the Visio file, IE11 attempts to open it (as expected) but only displays a blank page.
Does anyone know if there is a fix for this issue?   Other articles suggest that Visio Viewer 2016 does not support IE11.

My bosses' laptop has been progressively getting worse over the past few days. Today he's unable to get any connection in Firefox, and unable to send/receive email in Outlook 2003. However he does have full access to the network since he's able to see the server drives. Full scans from both AVG 2011 and MBAM revealed nothing besides tracking cookies.

Edit: A small update.. now he's unable to launch any programs.

While I was running DDS, Windows XP's malware removal tool pop up a notification window saying that there was an Alureon infection. Unfortunately the window disappeared while I was reading it. I don't know if that's normal (it's the first time I've EVER seen that thing pop up) but maybe there's some clue in the logfiles.

"Patch Tuesday" broke our install of Outlook 365. It was working fine on Monday and on Tuesday it was hanging on "Processing." So I restored back to the last restore point before the update and it worked great after that. Yesterday it re-installed the updates, and again Outlook didn't load. Restoring again today "fixed" it. Now it wants to update again, so I will disable updates until the problem is fixed. I don't know which particular "patch" is causing the problem; there were about 22 of them that installed.

Malicious hackers are using the Google Code repository to host Trojans horses, backdoors and password stealing keyloggers, according to researchers at Zscaler.

The researchers found a malicious project hosted on the free Google Code site with about 50+ malware executables stored in the download section of the project.

According to Zscaler’s Umesh Wanve, most of the files are executable files along with zipped “.rar” files.

Hey everyone, I have got a really strange problem. Any help would be appreciated!
I have a few small websites hosted on a fedora server, and on ANY WIRED WINDOWS box, when i go to visit the websites hosted on my server,

internally, the page does not load.

Sometimes parts of the page get loaded, some of the images etc, but the browser (firefox, ie, anything) never fully gets all of the data. It

just circles around and eventaully times out.

I can visit the outside world fine, any other site, but as soon as i go to an internal site on the very same wired client, they fail.

Here is some other information:

--> The server is hosted on a wired connection

--> When i boot up a wired machine with Fedora and request a page on an internal site, it works. windows, wired clients are the only ones

that fail.

--> If you go to our sites on any wireless connection, on any operating system on any type of box, they work.

--> I have tried using a HTTP tracing utility such as Fiddler, and it just circles around as well, no information regarding the request is

displayed.

--> I have tried putting all the cards to 100megabit full duplex instead of auto negotatiated, still dont come up on windows.

I know the network, router etc are all good, because the same wired client booted on fedora works no problem, and the sites get served up to

the outside world just fine.

I know its a mouthful, but im beatin my brains out trying to figure this one out. Any help would be ... Read more

Hi. I need some assistance figuring out what might be causing my problem. My email client (Outlook) is configured to download my email from my Exchange host. Starting yesterday, Outlook is stuck at "Trying to connect to Microsoft Exchange." When I attempt to access the server through Outlook Web Access, the browser times out every time. I attempted OWA on my netbook using my home network to the same results. However when I connected using a wireless connection no affiliated to the home network, I was successful at getting to OWA. I hope this isn't too confusing? What might my issue be connecting through my desktop? I thought my ISP might have blocked the mail server, but they say they haven't. I need help here. Thanks. PS. There are no error messages. It just doesn't connect.

Outlook '07 + Kerio Connector (MS Exchange alternative)

The Kerio service is great. My laptop, my wife's laptop, my wife's desktop and our 2 iPhones remain totally up to date and sync'd over the air with all functions of our separate Outlook programs (email, contacts, appointments, tasks, notes).

There's 1 serious problem with a 'hosted service' I just came across--apparently a function of the system. Previously, maintaining Outlook locally, if you goofed and deleted a task or a contact you could retrieve the form from Outlook's trash. More importantly and to the point, if you saved a task (for example) when you didn't intend to you could always go back to an earlier, locally backed up PST file or image. Not so with the Kerio service--Gone is gone.

The work around is to manually export the PST file from the server using the local Outlook File/Export. From what I'm told, if you tell Kerio to work locally/offline, Kerio keeps all the 'pst' data in various Kerio files. So the even though you're Exporting the PST file, you do so online, through your local Outlook when creates a local PST file from the Kerio servers.

So the (my) problem is with the apparent rigidity of Outlook's export function...listed as follows:

1. Outlook's default export name is Backup.pst. On one of the screens you're asked whether to delete the existing, something else and the one I thought would serve my purpose "allow duplicate items to be created". I would have thought that Outlook would ... Read more
