Set the Mail.app startup mailbox Apps
In order to filter my incoming email, I've set up a series of rules that correspond to appropriate mailboxes. I noticed earlier this afternoon that Mail.app was not auto-displaying my Inbox folder. Here's why:

Mail.app auto-displays the last mailbox you viewed before quitting the program. This mailbox "preference" is preserved through restarts, log outs, etc. Normally I keep Mail.app running so long as my computer is on; still, I felt this "tip" fit nicely into the FYI category.

So to make sure mail.app opens to the proper mailbox, select your main mailbox before quitting the program.
