The only change that was made in this regard was the addition of
"namespace" all other information remains as was.
I used my previous settings from v.3.09:
    'name' => 'IMAP Server',
    'server' => 'localhost',
    'hordeauth' => false,
    'protocol' => 'imap/ssl/novalidate-cert',
and/ or:
    'protocol' => 'imap/ssl',
    'port' => 993,
    'maildomain' => 'domain.tld',
    'smtphost' => 'localhost',
    'smtpport' => 25,
    'realm' => '',
    'preferred' => '',

These settings *should* have worked for/ and with my imap-us imapsd
and with the cert generated by imap-uw who's location was correctly
entered into the IMP settings.

Networking/ certificates, etc.. have not changed. How would this
*suddenly* become culprit?

See above. :)

Thank you again for your response.

Shameless self-promotion follows...
