I believe xbuffy can do this, but I don't know if there is a debian
package for it. It can monitor multiple mailboxes (or qmail Maildirs,
once patched appropriately) and shows you he number of new messages. A
click on it will also show the Subject lines of the messages.
Unfortunately I can't rememeber where I got it, but a search should turn
it up, and if it's not deb'd, it's pretty easy to compile yourself.
Only thing I didn't like about it is it's a bit boring (asmail is so
much sexier) and I couldn't get it to sit in the AfterStep Wharf.
