Thank you!!! Quoting the "$" fixed the syntax issue. And I moved the
namespace to the root level of the configuration, per your advice.
Now, the only problem I see is that when I attempt to create a new
folder beneath the Inbox (whether it contains a "." or not), the folder
appears at the root-level of the IMAP account, at the same level as the
Inbox itself. The folder name is "INBOX.My Folder".
Also, if I try to select the folder and view its contents, I receive the
error, "Mailbox doesn't exist: INBOX.My Folder". But this may simply be
a product of a misconfiguration on my part.
For what it's worth, this seems to happen regardless of the separator
that I define in the namespace.
Do I need to change something else in the Dovecot config for this to
work the way that I'm intending?
Thanks again for your invaluable assistance,
