Thank you for helping me. It's true that I did not mention all details.
Here they are: my problem is that the _all_my_mail_ disappears and I'm not
able to found it.

My $HOME/mail directory has the following permissions

drwx------   3 cpopescu cpopescu     2048 Feb  3 18:56 mail

and all the files in it have the permissions

-rw-------   1 cpopescu cpopescu     5390 Jan 30 22:20 stiplica

I also attach my currently .forward and .procmailrc files. 

Thank you for your help.

MAILDIR=/home/cpopescu/mail         # you'd better make sure it exists
DEFAULT=/var/spool/mail/cpopescu    # completely optional
LOGFILE=$MAILDIR/logfile         # recommended
