Summary15664: [feature request] OAuth implementation

Implement OAuth for LS email settings

Email providers are shifting to OAuth to allow app access so requesting that LS support OAuth in email settings.

Example: LS currently accesses Gsuite from Google by taking the login details of a Gsuite account in LS global email settings. Gsuite classifies applications that do this as 'LSAs' - Less Secure Applications and to allow LS to access Gsuite this way currently, you have to provide an extra permission.

Google plans to turn off access for LSAs and only permit access via OAuth: "

Access to LSAs will be turned off in two stages:

1. June 15, 2020 - Users who try to connect to an LSA for the first time will no longer be able to do so. This includes third-party apps that allow password-only access to Google calendars, contacts, and email via protocols such as CalDAV, CardDAV and IMAP. Users who have connected to LSAs prior to this date will be able to continue using them until usage of all LSAs is turned off.
2. February 15, 2021 - Access to LSAs will be turned off for all G Suite accounts."
