If you have any version of Thunderbird in the last 5 years you have an option of oAth2.0.

It looks like this.

If OAuth2 doesn't appear in the drop-down menu, it can be changed in Config. editor (Options/General/Indexing). Type authmethod into the search, and right-click the preference mail.server.server4.authMethod, Modify, and change the value to 10. The number after server may be 2 or 3 or... depending on how many accounts you have. Copy mail.server.server4.userName (or server2 or server3...) into the search to see the User Name for the account, which is usually the email address.
