Since you bring up this section of the FAQ, I must respectfully disagree
with it.  I occasionally (maybe once every couple days) see a single message
pop up in the Inbox, and then disappear.  I look in the Spam and Suspects
mailboxes, and they are empty, but the letter icon shows that something has
been received.  As far as I know, it never shows up in Deleted either.  I
have never used any filters in any of the mailboxes.  It doesn't bother me
any, because it's always spam, but someone with training problems could lose
real mail this way (if it is actually happening as I describe).  Of course,
it could be happening a lot more often than I am able to catch.
