I don't see how to make davmail work with gmail, as it's
intended for Exchange. But I have not investigated deeply.

The option I intend to try when the time comes (I have a
Workspace account and the deadline hasn't been announced yet)
is app passwords. These are available if you're willing to put
up with the initial hassle of two-factor authentication.
Fortunately you can mark a device as trusted and only have to
deal with the two-factor authentication one time per device.

I have read accounts of how to make oauth2 work natively with
gnus, but I haven't tried it and it seemed "complex and
wonderful" so I'm going to try app passwords first.
