    I'm not sure how everyone is doing this. But I do roughly 20-30 mail searches a day.

    But when the search is done and now I want to see the top of my most recent email (for new emails and whatnot). How do I get there?

    There's no keyboard shortcut to do this. And if I were to do this manually I have to press the X in the search field. Scroll the email list to the to top by using the scroll bar. It's really cumbersome.

    What does ESC do for you? I just tried it now, and ESC does nothing on my machine

    When the cursor is in the Search field, and I've typed things there, ESC will clear the field and put me back in the normal mailbox view, which I have sorted by date.

    If yours doesn't do that, then first check in System Preferences > Keyboard that you don't have an action bound to the ESC key.

    Or it might be that your version of Mail.app differs from mine.
