Description

3 years ago
Bug 1155491 has added OAuth2 authentication to the Mail & News Account Manager which yet has to be documented in the Help content, at least for the settings "Authentication Method" in the respective mail protocols.

This is primarily an issue for (new or recently established) Gmail users.

REPRODUCIBLE with  English SeaMonkey 2.45a1  (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:48.0)  Gecko/20100101 Firefox/48.0 Build 20160308001946  (Default Classic Theme)  on German WIN7 64bit: 

1. Browser → F1
   » Help appears
2. Type search string "IMAP Server Settings" → Click hit 
  "IMAP Server Settings"
   » Related Help appears
3. Search page for "OAuth"
   » fails
         
"Authentication method" ends with item "TLS Certificate", following "Oauth2" on selector is missing.

We have some sources at
<https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thunderbird-and-gmail>
<https://aaronparecki.com/2012/07/29/2/oauth2-simplified>
<https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/thunderbird> search results for
"OAuth"
<https://developers.google.com/gmail/oauth_overview>
But I have no competence to create an own text suggestion.

So before this really becomes "[good first bug]" we need a text suggestion. 

@Karsten:
can you help?

The same applies to the POP3 and SMTP server settings, unless OAuth2 was implemented for IMAP only.
