Why can't I link my Gmail to Windows Live Mail?

Episode 1122 (26:52)

Richard from Santa Monica, CA
Gmail

Richard is having trouble linking Windows Live Mail and Gmail. What gives? Leo says to make sure that IMAP is turned on. Then, if he has two factor authentication turned on, he'll have to use the app specific password for his gmail account. Also make sure SSL is checked on the incoming and outgoing servers for Google. It's likely that an app specific password is required.

Richard wants to know if his computer should be able to read the contents of his tablet if he plugs it in. Leo says no. That's a security feature. He'll need a USB to Go port to do that. And if he's not seeing it, his tablet doesn't support it.
