Global Inbox is absent

I'm trying to consolidate all my email addresses into the Global Inbox. No problem with the POP accounts - but once I click on the IMAP button (when setting up each new account) the option for the Global Inbox disappears. Once the account is set up, I cannot find anywhere to activate the Global Inbox option through the diaog box you see if you follow the prescribed "Tools", "Account Settings", "Server Settings", "Advanced Account Settings" route.

Has anyone managed to get their Gmail IMAP accounts into the Global Inbox? - I'd love to hear how you did it, so I can do it too!
