What OAuth2 support is that? All I could find was specific google oauth support. I think generic OAuth2 is basically missing.

This is in the Exchange Web Service component. I wasn't able to find it in KMail, and ended-up going through akonadiconsole for it, but there might be a more normal way to it.

I wish generic (IMAP) OAuth2 worked; I miss being able to have messages downloaded locally for offline...

Yeah. I looked into it. We basically have two different OAuth2 hacks, one for gmail and one for ews. There is code for in the IMAP and SMTP code but it is all tied up in the GMail specific hack.

Then again OAUTH2 is mostly a scam to collect more data on you, which is why they require your already tracked browser to log in. So it is no wonder it isn't properly standardized.
