Of course I'm aware that mutt an use IMAP and SMTP passwords.

So, there are hosted Gmail services, and you can turn on/off certain
settings.  One of the settings you can turn off is App Passwords
(which means you'd have to use your main password for IMAP/SMTP) and
it is considered a security risk to have IMAP/SMTP passwords enabled,
so I have it turned off.

Most high-level email clients let you set up authentication by using
Google's OAuth2 endpoint.  Mutt has some very minimal support for
this, but it requires creating your own custom google client IDs and
secrets, and I don't have access to the domain to do that.
