Google has since a while started to block normal IMAP/SMTP access to gmail unless users specifically activate "Enable less secure apps" in their account settings. <https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6010255?hl=en>

As alternative Google now require the use of OAuth 2.0 for authentication. The idea is to avoid showing the real user/password to each app that wants to connect to the account: <https://developers.google.com/gmail/oauth_overview>

Microsoft is also using OAuth2 with outlook.com <https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh243647.aspx>

OAuth website: <https://oauth.net/2/>

Many clients are also moving towards this, like Outlook and Thunderbird.
Are there any plans support OAuth 2.0 with Courier?

At this time I have no immediate plans, at the moment; but patches are welcome.
