Not quite.

It literally goes to the very first message in my inbox for the account 
that I started the search from - it doesn't stay on the old message that 
I found in the search, it re-selects the very first (oldest) message in 
the mailbox that (likely) has nothing to do with the search.


Select Inbox for Home account.
See most recent message at top.
Click on most recent message to display.
Now type "/ f wilbur"

All messages from wilbur are now displayed.

I scroll to one, select it, display it.

Now I hit escape.

I'm back at the Home inbox, but, MailMate is showing a message from 
Belinda, which happens to be the very first message (oldest) in the 

The situation you describe was the old situation that I was happy with, 
but for the last week whenever I leave a search I'm taken to the oldest 
message in the inbox, if I was in the inbox when I started the search.
