Why can't I use Gmail with Windows Live Mail?

Episode 1232 (1:30:18)

Julia from Yorba Linda, CA

Julia is having problems with Windows Live Mail, which is rejecting her Gmail. Leo says that Julia needs to check her settings to make sure the server settings are properly configured. Make sure that IMAP is enabled in GMail's settings. She could also use POP, but Leo says that IMAP is better. GMail will also give her step by step instructions to set it up as well. Leo recommends turning on two factor authentication. There may be an app specific password she'll need once she turns that on, though.
