Receiving emails - IMAP Authentication with OAuth 2.0

Added by Sir Will 2 months ago

Hello,

is there currently any option to configure the receiving of emails with IMAP via OAuth? I'm currently using Gmail with plain Username + Password authentication, but this will probably no longer work soon:

Starting May 30, 2022, Google will no longer support the use of third-party apps or devices which ask you to sign in to your Google Account using only your username and password.

I think the procedure described on this page may be helpful. I have not tried it yet.

I have created an App Password now, which requires 2FA to be enabled for the Google account, but seems to work so far. (https://support.google.com/mail/answer/185833)
