I added the account normally following the instructions on internet and it was successful and I was getting mails into my free Gmail account pulled from my new Google Gsuite account. And now, all of suddenly it stopped working, I am trying to import my Google Gsuite mail into my free Gmail account by deleting the import, by setting it up from Settings => Accounts and Import. I have followed everything mentioned in here and here.

The steps I followed are:

  1. I enabled POP download and IMAP access in my Google Gsuite email.
  2. I then tried to import my Google G Suite mail, into my free mail using the instructions in the link above, but it would just not work, and I keep getting this message.

    Server denied POP3 access for the given username and password.

So I am at loss how to import my new Google G suite account into my existing free Gmail account. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • So, this is strange actually. The mail was actually working before it stopped. I then contacted Google support and I had to enable the SMTP and POP3 from the G Suite administrator account. Then I had to create a forwarding to my free gmail account (instead of a POP3 fetch) and also set up the SMTP in my free gmail account.
