    I upgraded from 8.1 directly to 10586.218 on my AT&T Lumia 1520 via Insider Release Preview ring, then did a hard reset and restored from backup. As usual, I had to retype the passwords of my non-Gmail e-mail addresses and authenticate the Gmail ones via the page. However, to my surprise, I now encounter the attached error, which doesn't allow me to even enter the user name. I tried adding as a new Gmail address and get the same error. How can I work around this? How are you supposed to add a Gmail account on Windows 10?

    EDIT: In case someone ends up finding this thread while searching for the same problem, I found a workaround. Go into the settings of Edge browser, set the preference to Desktop instead of Mobile page, press back to exit settings and then back again to exit Edge. Then, try adding or fixing your Gmail account again. This worked for me. Remember to go back to the Edge settings and change your preference to Mobile. Well, unless you prefer the Desktop setting, of course.

    In my case, that's 100%. That Gmail account is my primary personal Gmail account. That means I cannot receive or send e-mail on my phone. Nice.

    So what maka1105 suggested above did work. I had already tried this once, but I never exited the Edge browser before trying to add my account again. This time around, I changed the setting, pressed Back to exit and save settings and then, back again to exit the browser. Once I attempted to add my Gmail account again, this worked.

    I wanted to let you who are also having this problem know and I edited my original post in case someone else finds this.

    I gave in and added my gmail account to the Outlook app. I WAS rather enjoying the sweet web-based render in Edge Mobile, and the features that were very slick. But alas, the temporary harmony has apparently ended.

    Best option is to convert to an outlook.com account in my opinion. Eschew all things Google.

    Sorry, I just hate Google that much.

    Now I know what everyone is talking about. I had reset my 950 XL a week ago but had not synced the e-mail and people apps, so today I did.....or thought I would.

    I just went though all my stuff and changed anything that I had gmail on..... bye bye google.

    But you can add an outlook account to android phone, like the LG Leon.
    Although it is not made by google.
    What about those that have Nexus phone? Pure android

    what it looks like these days is MS is playing nice with all the companies but the others don't want to reciprocate the same.

    I found the solution was to log onto Google from the edge browser using the desktop version log on to the account. Then go back to outlook and add the Google account this time the "spoof browser" Window doesn't open just the log on details

    I have a Nexus 4, I flashed Ubuntu on it and sent the android to the recycling pile :) I would rather have an Ubuntu phone with no mainstream apps that an android with all the apps.
