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.

### posted on the debian-user list.
MAILDIR=/home/cpopescu/mail # you'd better make sure it exists
DEFAULT=/var/spool/mail/cpopescu # completely optional
LOGFILE=$MAILDIR/logfile # recommended
# I use the FROM header because if it comes from the listserver I want it

### This sends all mail from the debian lists to debian
### Anything NOT from these will end up in my inbox
