Hello,

Thank you for your message.

The adding of oauth support for Gmail authentication has been forwarded to our development team, however it is not planned yet for implementation.

Therefore, you might indeed not be able to send emails as of May 30th, when Google will automatically turn off the Less secure apps feature within the settings of your account. Nevertheless, you should be able to enable it again afterwards, according to Google documentation https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6010255.

Regards.
