I wish I did not have to have such a complicated setup. My work email account 
has just stopped allowing basic password authentication, however, so I can no 
longer use Emacs for my work email until I figure this out.

I do not know if OAuth2 refers to something proprietary, if so I apologize for 
bringing it up here. My only goal is to be able to use Emacs rather than 
proprietary software for my work email.

I submitted a patch for a “cyrus-sasl-xoauth2” package that may allow this to 
work, but I do not yet know enough about Guix packaging to complete the 
package. If anyone has a similar problem and has advice or can help I would 
really appreciate it. Thanks!
