The interesting thing is now I have 1 *.source file that has an Auth

account. Yet, either way .. using 0auth2 fails with the same error.

just in case, the flatpak version doesn't save its data into
the flatpak version runs as a sandbox, not talking to the installed
evolution/evolution-data-server at all.

Is there any easy way to tell if my currently installed version of
data-server was built with it enabled ?

I'm afraid not from the outside. One can run a little test program to
figure it out, but it's not needed. The flatpak version does have it

So I might just be confused by the current evolution version being
listed as 3.32, but the runtimes being 3.30. or the docs are out of

I see. The "runtime-version" means "what libraries are needed to
& run the software being built". It doesn't say what is built inside.
There are also "branch": "gnome-3-32" in the .json file, which say
software is built. In any case, the best is the Help->About.

I do not understand why the flatpak evolution would claim the error.
Not being it the flatpak version I'd suggest to run the
evolution-source-registry from the command line with debugging on
but the flatpak version has everything fresh. I'm out of idea
I do not know, you accidentally ran the system evolution, instead of
the flatpak evolution, or when the claim comes from other application
than from evolution itself, still being it the host system
not the flatpak one).

I took another machine and loaded it up with  Linux Mint 19.1
based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
Linux 4.15.0-52-generic #56-Ubuntu SMP

I purposedly did not install the Evolution system build.

Then I installed the flatpak version.

I start the flatpak and have it load an Evolution backup as a starting
point.  The load succeeds with no messages in the terminal window where
I started the flatpak on the command line.

Shutdown Evolution.  Upon restart the flatpak version comes up and
pitches the following error.

   (evolution.bin:57): e-mail-engine-WARNING **: <time>: Failed to add
   service 'Sendmail'(sendmail): No provider available for protocol

In the error window with in Evolution shows

   Data source “<email>” does not support OAuth 2.0 authentication

for each account trying to use OAuth2.  Once cleared the messages never
reappear, yet the status icon in the account pane shows the connection
arrows with the red error indicator.

Both accounts are setup with 

   Receiving Email:
      Server:  Port:993
      Encryption method:  TLS on a dedicated port

   Sending Email:
      Server:  Port: 587
      Encryption method:  STARTLS after connecting

Neither is successful at authenticating with the Gmail servers.
