Which version of Windows?  Windows Mail or Windows Live Mail?
Are you trying to use POP or IMAP? 
What server settings are you using?
What errors are you getting?
marked this as an answer
Windows 10 x64    v. 1809 (build so 17763.107) (fresh clean install)

Windows 10  "Mail" app:    v.  17.9330.21365.0

Linking gmail account via guided procedure returns error 0x8000000b

Linking gmail account by manual setup  procedure using this values:

Incoming email server: imap.gmail.com:993
Account type: IMAP4
Outgoing email server: smtp.gmail.com:465

returns -> "We couldn't access this account. You might need to update your password or give the account permission to sync to this device."

Password is without a doubt correct.
In google account options "allow third party apps" is already set and windows (this pc) is showing in the list.
