I can't tell you how to resolve this problem, but I can give you hope.  I was
using RC1, with an import of SM 1.1.14 on a Win XP2 system, and I still had the
Inbox display that you want.  Also have it now with RC2.

I do have 2 accounts set up, but never use one of them.  It seems long ago I
selected the account I use, to open, or be the default, or something, but I 
find a setting like that now.  Probably didn't look long enough.  :)

I don't know what differences there were in 1.1.18 and 1.1.14, but hopefully
we're both overlooking something that will make your mail open and display as
you want.  I haven't looked at the profile manager in years, could it have a way
to designate this choice now?  Sorry I don't have the answer you need.

Thanks for your reply.  Neil found that the display of the Inbox upon
starting Mail & Newsgroups was dependent upon having the pref "Check for
new messages at startup" ticked.  Since I'd unticked it in 2.0 for testing,
rechecking it did the trick.
