Lost Tickets, Marked Successfully Ingested from E-mail

I have a Service Desk project configured to receive support requests by e-mail. I was made aware of an e-mail that did not make it into our system. 

In the 'Application' -> 'Email requests' -> 'Processing log', I can see that the e-mail was processed with a status of 'Success'.

I tried re-processing the e-mail by marking it unread and got a second, and third 'success' result. However, I still do not have a new ticket in my project.

I have exported logs and looked for the e-mail subject without success. Could someone provide some more insight about how the ticket creation system works, and where I could look for this ticket?

Found the answer. The ticket subject line had a ticket number from a different project (with a different mailbox). It appears that the system read that ticket number and applied the e-mail as a comment to the old project.

Is that expected behavior? It is not as much a problem for my use case, but I could see it being a problem.

are you using a separate mailbox for jira service desk or the same as jira?
