Re: [Evolution] Why does Thunderbird work and Evolution fail?

To the OP - Sorry for the double up, forgot to hit "reply list" :)

Just a probably completely wrong suggestion...  Setting up a new router yesterday, same machine same IP address same everything else except the new router also handles IPv6 and may've talked to gmail on that.

Before I could get Thunderbird in I had to respond to Google's "critical security alert" and click the 'yes this was me' box. Nothing else I tried would let Thunderbird connect.

Check for one of those. Also check the "allow insecure apps" setting is turned on (yeah, like your web browser (especially Chrome!) is going to be more secure than Evo or TB!), although if Thunderbird is working that should be.

Gmail got its customer base by being simple to use. They have now gone and made it damned annoying to use. But there's a lot of work in changing after using them for so many years. Must get off my backside and rebuild my own server.

Desktop: MATE 1.24.0
Distro: Linux Mint 20.2 Uma

So I currently have 8 Gmail/G-Suite accounts that use imap and oauth2.
As of my upgrade to LM 20.x, Evolution fails to authenticate into the gmail

Every time Evolution attempts to connect via imap, I get the login dialog, followed
by the request to allow/deny Evolution access to my account. I provide the required
information and nothing happens.  No list of emails, no previews, no indication of email being available.

At the next time interval or the next time I click Send/Receive, the same things happens.

The only clue seems to be that on the 2nd and following attempts the login popup says "Oauth2 secret not found".  I haven't cleared any caches intentionally, maybe accidentally.

Yet,  same set up, same machine Thunderbird is running flawlessly on the same 8 accounts.  Checking the Google account pages, shows for every account that both
Evolution and Thunderbird  are authorized.

So why does Evolution fail when Thunderbird succeeds?

What did I screw up?
