Why won't my Gmail work with the mail app?

I have a problem with my mail app. I tried to set up my email with gmail but it says authentication failed. please verify username/password but both of it is correct as I am able to log in onto my gmail through the internet. my mail app used to be connected with outlook so all my mail came to my phone but after deleting that account and trying to set it up with gmail it will not allow me? thanks
