Where they show up in your mail list depends on how you have the mail 
view pane sorted.  Notice the different columns in the mail view window. 
  At the top of each column is a button to select sorting by that 
column.  If you have sorting by thread, then the new mails will appear 
in their appropriate thread.  If you want them to appear by date, then 
hit the button at the top of the date column.  If you prefer to sort by 
sender, hit that column's button.  You can also add or remove columns by 
depressing the button above the slider, which will reveal a menu of 
columns you can add or delete.
