I use gmail on my Evolution. Have you tried using Online Accounts to set it up? I use Settings-->Online 
Accounts and selecting Google.
Worked for me without having to enter the port numbers or security settings.

Evolution 3.26.6

I've tried everything I can think of and have found googling and I 
can't make evolution work with gmail.  When I first setup evolution a 
few months ago, it worked, but then I had some issue with it and my 
exchange mail account and uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of 
times and now it just will not work.  I have tried all the different 
encyption methods, oauth2 and password authentication
Prettty much all the same error, or two different errors maybe... 
with the standard configuration that it auto configures when I give it 
my email address  port 993
tls on dedicated port  and oAuth2  I get a big red banner failed to 
connect and failed to open folder with a reconnect button.  When I 
reconnect, I put my credentials in and then I get failed to open 
folder, the reported error was failed to authenicate the name 1.9 was 
not provided by and service files and thats pretty much it, it doesn't 
fetch mail.  I have tried password and starttls after connecting and 
combinations of these, but always the read banner saying can't open 
folder... actually with the second combination above it goes to 
loading and I was hopeful it might be downloading, but no, eventually 
it gives up after a very long time.  I know evolution must work with 
google as it did at first, is there
something I need to clean out of it that might be cached?   Would
reallly appreciate any help with this as I am now using Linux Mint 
more than 50% of the time and growing for work as it's just more 
efficient than windows for the work I am doing these days and having 
to turn to my windows system to check my gmail or use the web browser 
doesnt' really cut it.
