This sounds like the infamous old "From_" bug, where the first letter

Often when mail disappears it is caused by a syntax error in one of
the recipes in the .procmailrc file. Check it out or send the actual

If there was a syntax error should there have been SOMETHING in the log?
I am starting to suspect that what happened is for some reason the
