One solution (which I use) is to run an imap server off your maildir,
then access the mail using any IMAP-capable MUA.  That should solve your
incompatible-storage-format problem.  I use dovecot as my imap server,
and access it using gnus.  There are several howtos on setting up

I also use notmuch to index the maildir, and I'm considering just
switching to the notmuch emacs mode for reading email.
