Before and after mounting: What are the mount folder's user/group
permissions? Who owns the mount folder (user/group)?

If you do a "stat
<>" as the user dovecot is
running as (from your mail I see austin owns that file - is dovecot run
as user austin?) - do you also get an error?

If you do get an error - could you create a small encrypted fs and mount
it to another folder, create a file there and check again for "stat
file"? Play with the permissions and user/group assignments. Still
getting an error?
