KMail Not Syncing Gmail Accounts After Recent Updates

As the title says, KMail has stopped syncing GMail accounts for me across all of my machines. The last messages that synced are dated August 31st. KMail will still sync other IMAP based accounts I have, but my Gmail accounts appear in red font. The status line of KMail indicates “Unable to fetch item from backend (collection -1) unable to contact resource” when I highlight my GMail accounts.

Anyone else experiencing this issue and/or know a workaround?

Help is much appreciated. Thank you.

Yes, I had the same issue. It is related to the Google authentication method oauth.

I could remedy the problem by adding a symbolic link

# ln -s /usr/lib64/sasl2/ /usr/lib64/sasl2/


Best regards,
