Well, I use Thunderbird because it supports Gmail accounts out of the box.
But I wish I could use Mutt or similar, alas Gmail requires that I need
to enable 2FA and s/<google account password>/<specific app password>/
in order to access Gmail via Mutt. I currently steer clear from 2FA, because
once upon a time in 2018 I screwed up (locked-out) from my older account,
which IMO mission-critical., for I couldn't pass all possible verification
methods for that. So I created new account one in about Día de Kartini
(Kartini's day).

And yes, Google/Yahoo/MS have webmail interface for their mail services
(Gmail/YahooMail/Outlook), but for purposes for sending to,
these above are rubbish because they genereated HTML emails, and vger hate
HTML emails.
