Last Updated: Sep 19, 2018 12:00PM CDT
When setting up your KW email on any email client that is not Gmail directly, such as Outlook or Apple Mail, you must first turn on the "Allow Less Secure Apps" setting in Gmail.

​1. At the top right of your Gmail inbox, click the circle with your picture or initials and choose the blue My Account button.


2. In the "Sign-in & Security" section, click on Connected Apps and Sites.


3.On this page, scroll down until you see "Allow Less Secure Apps" and turn it on. The Outlook setup will not work unless this is turned on.


*Note: ​If you have Two Step Verification for your KW Google account turned on, ​you will not see this setting.
