If you are loosing mail, you might want to look in the /var/spool/mail
directory.  I don't remember what I did wrong, but earlier this year I
had a configuration problem and my mail ended up there with the user
name of "nobody".  I wish I could remember what I did to fix it (it
works now).  I think I had a problem with the ".procmailrc" and I
scrapped it and wrote another one (the old one had gotten a lot of
junk in it anyway.)  After this everything went fine.
