I believe Lion Server uses Roundcube for webmail and it defaults to that date format. I'm not sure what directory it's in but you're looking for config/main.inc.php and the entry you want to change is:

// use this format for detailed date/time formatting (date or strftime format)
$rcmail_config['date_long'] = 'd.m.Y H:i';
