Can't Use Institutional Emails with Thunderbird

Hi, I have three different university emails that I was hoping to add to Thunderbird, and I can't login to any of them. Two are Outlook, and one is Gmail. When I try to login with any of them, it says the password is incorrect, but I've verified with at least one of them that the password definitely is correct and I don't see how it could be wrong for the others. I was able to login to my regular Gmail via Thunderbird, but can't login to these ones. A little help, please?

Both Outlook and Gmail use OAuth2 authentication, where you enter the account password in a browser-like window, not the normal TB password prompt. What is the authentication method on your accounts?
