Hello and welcome.

Are you using 2-Step Verification on your Google account?

It may just be because Outlook 2011 is so old that it doesn't support the current SSL and security protocols that Gmail uses. High Sierra is also aging and doesn't support the latest protocols, as you may have seen some secure websites will not load.

Here is an article from 2010 that I found: How To Wrangle Outlook 2011 To Work With Gmail
