The "new mail" code is in desperate need of a rehaul.
However it's not trivial, especially if you want to do small and incremental changes.
At least I don't feel comfortable enough doing a complete rewrite.

If you're interested, I took a first stab at it here: https://github.com/neomutt/neomutt/pull/4077.
The idea is to move the notification handling out of the main loop and into an observer.

yeah, tbh I also don't know why I did it like that. :-)

I have another change pending that tracks the check time per mailbox instead of global.
In that version I also just set it to 0: https://github.com/neomutt/neomutt/pull/4065
