Hello all,

I'm trying to connect to outlook 365 through my console application(C#) using OAUTH2 but I keep getting **AUTHENTICATE failed (NO)** when authenticating the connection. I have tried the same acquired token with another library and I was able to connect, Authenticate and read my emails. 
I also disabled the Multi factor authentication in Azure.
Please advise.  

            var clientApp = ConfidentialClientApplicationBuilder

            var authenticationResult = await clientApp
                    .AcquireTokenForClient(new[] { ""})

            var accessToken = authenticationResult.AccessToken;

            string rawToken = string.Format("user={0}{1}auth=Bearer {2}{1}{1}", email, '\x1', accessToken);
            string rawXOAUTH2Token= Convert.ToBase64String(Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(rawToken));

            ComponentPro.Net.Mail.Imap imap = new ComponentPro.Net.Mail.Imap();
            await imap.ConnectAsync("", 993, SslSecurityMode.Implicit);
            await imap.AuthenticateAsync(rawXOAUTH2Token, ImapAuthenticationMethod.OAuth20);

also, another question is, does ComponentPro supports connecting to Office 365 using OAuth2.0? if yes, then why there is the following summary for Enum  'ImapAuthenticationMethod.OAuth20'?

        // Summary:
        //     OAuth 2.0 authentication defined by
