Stoic Joker:
Some of the mentions i have seen on this mentioned two-stage authentication as an issue.

Yepper, that one's a bugger. And they make it really hard to disable by burying the link (that I posted earlier..). While I haven't had occasion to deal with Office 2016 much, I have seen Gmail accounts take exception to Office 2013 a few times ... And the "fix" was always to enable Access for Less Secure Apps. Log into the target account, then past the link into the browser to get there. Enable it and then wait 10-20 minutes for it to actually take effect (I've seen it take up to an hour), and then it should behave after that.

We go through this frequently when setting up Multi-Function Printers to get Scan-To-Email working with Gmail accounts. Which is why I had - and keep - the link handy.
