I've got exactly the same problem.  Previously (and still in every other 
client) the folder prefix for courier is "INBOX".  Setting that makes folder 
lists like

 |- Inbox
 |- Sent
 `- Drafts

After an upgrade to KDE 3.5; the "folder prefix" option is gone and the 
namespaces options have appeared.  However, even though the "Personal" 
namespace is detected by kmail correctly as "INBOX." the folders all appear 

  `- Inbox
      |- Sent
      `- Drafts

Despite what Derek says, I don't think this is a bug in Courier, it's working 
fine in mutt and thunderbird (and was fine in Kmail from 3.4)

Strangely enough, I've also tried a cachedimap setup and that works as 
expected: the prefix does apply.  Smells like a bug in Kmail to me.
