I have the access granted:

  "Akonadi Resources for Google Services" has access to Gmail

kaccounts-providers is already installed.

I removed the password from the Google SMTP account and tried to send an
e-mail using XOAUTH2. With SSL/TLS sending fails quite quickly with "server
closed connection". With STARTTLS it takes some time before it times out.
No dialog or web browser appears asking for any password.

As soon as I switch back to PLAIN then KDE asks for the password and after
providing it I was able to send the e-mail.

I wonder if the missing authentication dialog for XOAUTH2 is the problem and
how I can resolve it or how I can debug it.
