Have you inadvertently aliased the root user to another user?  Or 
perhaps you deleted an alias and should be looking in the "root" mailbox? 

I have virtual mail setup on my systems and I lost periodic emails as 
well until I configured postfix correctly to consider my local machine's 
hostname as an acceptable recipient.  I now alias root to the virtual 
user I want to receive these emails.
