Surely in step [3] you have to go through the same tedious process to
get OAuth2 set up for gmail? My thinking was:

1. Get a new email provider
2. Tell google to forward 100% of your email to the new provider
3. Switch various accounts to provider

Even better of course is if in step [1] you get your own domain, and
get someone to host mail service for it.
