The speedbar in MH-E show the list of folders along with the number of
unseen message and total messages.  If you tell procmail to insert new
mail directly into MH folders, you could use the speedbar to navigate
the new messages.  Another method is `mh-index-new-messages' bound to
"F n" which will show a Folder-summary buffer displaying all new
messages in all folders.

I use neither of these because I like to have xbuffy display various
spool files which are only sucked into MH directories when I read them.

I see.

Yes.  There's the menubar, but there's also a keymap.

Depends on the implementation.  nmh creates MH directories and files
from regular spool files and from POP.  Mailutils mh handles IMAP AFAIK.
