Gmail is eating my mail (or trashing it on archive)

I’ve been using Gmail as my sole email client since last December and have loved it. I pop all my accounts (a total of 8) into one, and “conversations” is hands down the best thing to happen to email since email. But my gmail has been acting up lately.

When I archive a mail item from time to time, the item just vanishes without a trace. Not in the trash bin, spam folder, my custom folders, nothing. Sometimes my phone (that uses my gmail account) receives the email, but when I look on gmail.com, I got nothing.

Has anyone else had this funky problem, or is it that I just don’t have any professional training of email? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills…
