It seems that google mail has raised its security by refusing some software from login in. My Outlook mail software can no longer sign in on pop/smtp server, Connection denied. Is there a hope that this security issue in outlook will be fixed?

As it has been this way for quite a while, I'm not sure that there is any "fix" in the near offing.
You can remedy it by going to your good Gmail account web interface and adjusting your setting for "Less secure app access"

My ourlook is an old office 2007 outlook. Just for fun I tryed to install the new office, and there the outlook just worked. The office 2007 is satisfying for me so i uninstalled the new office.
