I think it would be better, if you put the namespace configuration at the top level. See or 10-mail.conf and 15-mailboxes.conf, that are located in the
doc/example-config/conf.d/ directory of the Dovecot sources, for more examples.

There was a mistake in the wiki. You should quote the $ like this: "$".
