That’s not strictly true. If you use the ‘Edit Mailbox…’ command
on the Inbox (the one under Mailboxes, not the one in Sources), there is
a Conditions tab where you can specify which messages should/shouldn’t
appear. For example, I have mine configured not to display Flagged
messages (since I use a separate smart mailbox to see them). However,
what that doesn’t give you is the ‘Mailboxes’ tab (which is indeed
only for smart mailboxes), which is where you could say ‘don’t show
messages that are in this other mailbox’.
So I’d say your best bets are probably either to make a smart mailbox
that you can use as your inbox (and, for example, drag it to the top of
the list, while dragging the ‘actual’ inbox somewhere else out of
the way), where you *could* use the Mailboxes tab to specify not to show
anything that is in certain other mailboxes; or, to modify your other
mailboxes so they use the Rules tab to add a tag to any messages they
contain, and then use the Conditions tab on your actual inbox to set it
not to show messages with those tags.
