The Case of the Disappearing Mail

I received an email in Mail on my iPhone that I soon forwarded to a friend.

When I look for the original mail, I cannot find it; however, I can find the mail that I forwarded.

When I search for the mail using time sent (to narrow down the number of possible hits), the mail appears for a few seconds before disappearing.

Does anyone have any idea what digital magic is at work?

There is a chance that someone sent me this email from an account different to the account than the email shows it coming from. The person that possibly sent it works in the IT industry, so perhaps there is some digital magic at foot; otherwise, I am starting to become senile.

Thanks in advance.
