For the Life of me I cannot get it to work no matter how many times I follow the Gmail
Settings page.

I have a feeling the port is incorrect: Here are the settings:

Go to: Account Settings
Select Manual setup
Choose POP/  IMAP
Account type: IMAP
Incoming mail server: imap.gmail.com
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.gmail.com
Add your logon information: please note: you need to mention your entire email address in username.

Go to More settings
Select the Outgoing server
Select "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication"
And choose:  Use same settings as my incoming mail server

In the same window go to the Advanced tab and verify the following.

Incoming server (IMAP): 993 or 143
Incoming server encrypted connection: SSL
Outgoing server (SMTP): 25 or 465
Outgoing server encrypted connection: TLS

All the best!

Since the instructions tell to use either 993 or 143 for incoming mails, did you try both ports?
