Well, I previously went from Mint 18.0 -> 18.1 -> 18.2 -> 18.3 and the
version of evolution went from 3.12 to 3.18 and I don't recall any
updates outside of the major updates ie 18.0 to 18.1, etc

That's where I started out.. with "less secure set".. via the account
manager as it is a corp account.  I suspect that evolution sees that
Oauth2 is available as a login and defaults to it.. Thus, any time I
edit the profile I need to verify that it is still set to
password/login and not reverted back to OAuth2.

Yeah.. I just got to find an hour or two uninterrupted to figure it all
 out and get it all configured.
