My unsuccessful settings are shown below (iCloud account in Europe), if this helps.....
Apple recently made some changes which dis-allows accessing iCloud using smtp. Some users have been able to use iCloud, but many don't.
The best solution at this moment is using the servers of Google (GMail). In your GMail account settings you can add your iCloud email address.
This allows you using the GMail servers for both your GMail email address and your iCloud email address.
