Configuring Gmail account

Hi all,
I am new in Zimbra. I need a client for my mail as I am not used to web based mails.
My Company uses Gmail as mail and Calendar server.
I have configured it in several Clients: Oulook, eM, Thunderbird, etc. and had problems with all of them.
Now, I am testing Zimbra but I cannot start using it because when I try to setup my mail and Calendar account I receive 2 errors:
After selecting Gmail as my mail server,
1. If I select to Sync Agendas, I receive an error that says "It is impossible to access Agenda Service you will not be able to sync your Agenda" Please see attachemnt (my apologies it is in Spanish)
2. Unselecting Agendas syncronization I receive a different message: "Failed to authenticate User account. Check User name and Password" Obviously I am sure about my user name and password, therefore I suppose it is a different setting problem.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Sorry I cannot attach screenshots. "According to quotas."

I have retried after almost one year and it keeps on with the same errors. Nobody from Zimbra seems to answer. :(

Also, no one from Zimbra Cares about Zimbra Desktop.

You need to create a Google "App password"

1. Go to
https://myaccount.google.com/security

2. Find this section on the page:

Signing in to Google
Password & sign-in method:
Password
2-Step Verification
App Passwords

3. Click on App passwords: https://myaccount.google.com/apppasswords
4. You'll be asked to log in to your Google Account again
5. Create a new "App Password"
6. Write down the new "App password" they give you (mine was 16 lowercase letters)
7. In the Zimbra Desktop configuration of your GMail account, use THIS new "App password" instead of your regular GMail password.

This also works when adding one's GMail calendar to the Zimbra web UI Calendar tab; just use the server "www.google.com"

Thanks for posting this!

All the best,
