We run postfix/cyrus mail servers. My experience with messages not showing up 
happens with Outlook (versions 2003, 2007, and 2013), squirrelmail, and mac 
mail. In all cases reported, the user can find messages either by sorting by 
date or by searching on some matching criteria. We put this in our FAQ. I have 
not noticed this issue with a server using sendmail/dovecot.
