Evolution not showing mail


For some time now, it receives the mail, but when the process completes I have nothing in my inbox. It worked just peachy for a long time, now this all of the sudden. I worry it is being intercepted somehow, how can I find out what is going on? I am an extreme newb, patience plz!

if you use fetchmail, take a look in /var/spool/mail or /home/user/mail
do you use by any chance procmail, or a forward rule anywhere?

I removed all the rules when the problem started. i don't know what procmail is.
In var/spool/mail all I find is rkhunter reports.

Lots of this:
