I'm on Debian/Sid for ages. Recently there were almost no package
update because Debian is in full freeze state.
Since 2018 I'm able to receive e-mails via IMAP from imap.gmail.com
using the "gmail" authentication method.
However, I was never able to get the XOAUTH2 method to work with SMTP.
After I've got another reminder from Google that I should disable the
"less secure access" I decided to start another debugging session but
unfortunately I didn't came very far.
If I use the settings STARTTLS/587/XOAUTH2 then I get the following

Not really the question here but while I won't argue that this would (probably!) be better, I doubt wonder whether and why regular IMAPS would no longer be good enough if it was before. Esp. for gmail, because frankly, who trusts Google with really sensitive information...
Google in fact P me off increasingly with their blocking my access whenever I connect from a novel location, or even when something in my ISP routing changes. I'd just as well disable that "feature" too...
