without a trace.  Some new mail has appeared since the vanishing.
Everyone else's email in intact.

I don't mean I sent a message and it disappeared.
I mean all my email in /var/spool/mail/hendrik

Have you looked in /var/mail?
Although they aren't linked, both /var/spool/mail and /var/mail contain
the mail here.

Also did you fire up any software that copied it into a /home/<user>/mail or /home/<user>/Mail or /home/<user>/Maildir directory?

(Like when you exit mutt -- would you like to move your messages to ____?)
