I rand some google searches and found out that the main problem is the gmail XOAuth2 mechanism. If you have multiple Accounts registered in Apple Mail with the the checkbox enabled for „Automatically detect and maintain account settings“ the program somehow thinks every mailserver uses XOAuth2. Well after unchecking this for incomming (IMAP) and outgoing (smtp) it worked again without any change required on the corresponding mailserver.

 

WHY YOU NO TEST YOUR FUCKING MAILSHIT APPLE?
