By default, mutt will put the cursor on the first New message, and if
there are none, the first Old message, and if there are none, the first
message.  I bet you've got an unread message in the middle of your
mailbox :)

If you want mutt to go to the first message in any folder, add this to
your ~/.muttrc file:

folder-hook . push <first-entry>

That will tell mutt to jump to the first message on any folder name
matching the regex "." (which will match anything).
