Email Icon in tray, but no email

I have Outlook 2003 installed, and I'm unable to see various types of emails after receiving them. A small email icon appears on the lower right corner of the preview pane indicating that I have received email. However when I go into the preview pane I am unable to actually see the email to read. Strangely enough this does not happen with every email sent to me.

i.e. Random Person A >> Sends Email >>> WWW >>> Email Received by Me >>> Email Icon Appears(Lower Right Hand) >> No physical email to see or read
      Random Person B >> Sends Email >>> WWW >>> Email Received by Me >>> Email Icon Appears(Lower Right Hand) >> Email appears in preview pane for opening and reading

Does anyone know what could be causing this? Is this perhaps some security email blocking feature that I'm unaware of.

1) Do you have folders and email rules setup?  Is a rule sending the email to a folder that not listed?
2) Do you have the nav pane on the lefthand side?  If not select Alt-F1 and see if your mail is there somewhere!
3) If the junk filter on, and if so, is the lost mail ending up in the Junk E-mail folder?
4) Is the mail appearing in the deleted items folder?
