Gmail does not require OAuth
On that page it is stated that "It is impossible to connect to email providers that require the OAuth authentication mechanism such as GMail or Mail.ru"
However, Gmail does not require OAuth authentication and I can confirm it is possible to access Gmail with Thunderbird in Tails.
I do not know if Mail.ru actually requires OAuth.
I propose removing Gmail as an example.

- Status changed from Confirmed to In Progress
- QA Check changed from Dev Needed to Ready for QA
Here's a branch:
Indeed, our patches disable OAuth2 so it will work for services that allow other authentication methods (I have not ever seen any service offer only OAuth2).
In light of this, I removed the entire note instead of just the Gmail example.
