Akismet Accidents?

I turned on the WordPress Akisment service that everybody’s been raving about. Didn’t think much of it until this morning, when I realized that I had not recieved one single comment for the past couple of days (which is very odd, even with the recent platform transition). I looked at my Akismet settings and it had trapped 21 very legit comments – without notifying me one way or another. Is something wrong here? Isn’t there a setting that’ll have Akismet email me when there’s a comment to moderate? Are you not seeing your comments show up when you know you posted them? I’m going to turn off Akismet until I figure out what’s wrong – because none of the comments it trapped were bad.
