Right, the command that alot fires initially - if not stated otherwise in the config or command line arguments - is
"search tag:inbox AND NOT tag:killed", which opens a new search buffer for query "tag:inbox AND NOT tag:killed".
We might consider changing this, as it indeed suggest that inbox or killed tags are special in some sense.

people don't start up theyr mail client and want to stare at a blank terminal.
Perhaps we could drop the "AND NOT tag:killed" here, I don't really have strong feelings about that.
To change the initial command edit the "initial_command" config option:
