Mac Mail 4.5 (Entourage) - GMail IMAP
 
I cannot get Entourage to connect with GMail!
I've Googled this and have tried many different suggestions.

I'm using:

Incoming Server: imap.gmail.com
Port: 993
SSL: checked


Outgoing Server: smtp.gmail.com
Port: 465
SSL: checked

Solved
 
The error messaged generated was: Signing in using application-specific passwords - Accounts Help

This reminded me that I had enabled Googles two-step security.
Once I remembered that, and requested an Application-specific password, it worked.
