Description:
------------
Adding XOAUTH2 support to imap_open would be very welcome. It's needed for Oauth2 
based access to Gmail. It's quite easy to add.

Thanks for the request. It should be easy to add the XOAUTH2 mechanism to the AUTHENTICATE step of imap_open, but consumers will need to add OAuth flows to their application; that's the hard part.

Because Google and Microsoft are switching to OAuth soon, and since there may be some developers who have questions on how to put it all together, we've assembled a single resource (info, plan, status, etc) for consumers: https://wiki.php.net/todo/ext/imap/xoauth2

It's a work in progress.

Hello, is there any news on this feature? On May 30th 2022, Google will shut down the possibility to use password authentication, with only a few exceptions, which may cover some use cases, but not all. Having imap_open support XOAUTH2 would be a big help for existing applications using imap_* functions.
