Description Dushyant 2020-10-21 11:02:52 UTC
Description of problem:
 - Enable oauth2 support in mutt for RHEL8

Why does the customer need this?
 - Microsoft Office 365 is eliminating basic auth for mail service.
   This breaks workflows using RHEL MUAs.

How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)
 - Enable oauth2 support in RHEL8 mail client "mutt".

For each functional requirement listed, specify how Red Hat and the customer can test to confirm the requirement is successfully implemented.
 - "mutt" can connect to Exchange/Office 365 mail using oauth2

Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat Bugzilla?
 - not aware of one

Does the customer have any specific timeline dependencies and which release would they like to target?
 - The ideal timeline is short, unfortunately. There are indications that Microsoft may push the deadline by a few months, but no commitment yet.

Is the sales team involved in this request and do they have any additional input?
 - No

List any affected packages or components.
 - mutt

Would the customer be able to assist in testing this functionality if implemented?
 - Yes
