Activity of account in Gmail

<p>If you're concerned about unauthorized access to your mail, you'll be able to use this data to find out if and when someone gained access. It's information we'd use to troubleshoot unauthorized account activity, and now it's available to you. Does the <strong>Access Type</strong> column show any unusual access? If you don't use POP to collect your mail, but your <strong>Recent activity</strong> table is showing some POP access, it may be a sign that your account has been compromised.</p>

Enabling Post Office Protocol or Internet Message Access Protocol

There is no doubt that gmail website would be the best place for searching the solution.
I summarize how I handled this problem (ofcourse using gmail help) in following steps:

1.Click “Settings” on the top right corner of your gmail account's homepage
2.Select the Tab “Forwarding and POP/IMAP “
3.There exists two different possibilities two choose : "POP"and "IMAP"(I clicked on the “learn more” of IMAP and found out that gmail has recommended it so I enabled IMAP).
4. Configure your outlook easily without being bothered with the Error prompt this time;)
