How To Fix VIP Mailbox Bug In Apple Mail On OS X 10.11 El Capitan

Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite Mail icon 1024x1024Coming up with OS X 10.11 El Capitan, the VIP Mailbox in Apple Mail is not working in the ‘Inbox’ view for certain VIP contacts. You can temporarily fix the VIP Mailbox Bug by switching the view to ‘All Mailboxes’. However, I must admit that this circumvention is not a real fix because you have to repeat it from time-to-time and you will see all mails of your VIP contact and not only the ones of the inbox. Update: The VIP Mailbox bug in Apple Mail is fixed on macOS 10.12 Sierra.
