who is user 26624? Is the uid valid at all? If it is invalid, are there
other files owned by this uid? Maybe only one of your NFS server has this
uid in its /etc/passwd? Is user "hamish" shared to another user somehow,
either via symlinks, ACLs, ...?

Well, it's the last inode change time. It does not neccessarily mean that
the ownership was changed then.

What about cron jobs, message delivery, backups, ... anything that
possibly can alter that file. I don't think, it's a Dovecot issue, unless
the uid 26624 is valid and hamish is shared with that user.
