Alternative Email domain setting after POP and IMAP

Hi there,

I believe most of the user’s are using GSuite or M365 email service. Recent disconnection of Gmail “Unsecure connect” function and M365 email disconnection of using old email method (POP / IMAP) which will be disconnect from all 3rd connection.

My question, is there any other method to connect to one of the above mention email service provider in ERPNext since POP and IMAP no longer workable after time later ?

Please advice if anyone have a better idea ?
