It's not so much about noticing new email (that's what gnome
mail-notification is for; oh and yes, I too have a tail
-f .procmail/log /var/log/messages running all the time) but about
accessing that mail once you know it's there: 

When the mail arrived in a different folder from the one that is
currently selected, everything is fine. You just select the new folder
in Sylpheed and the mail will be there. 

But if the mail was sorted into the same folder that is currently
selected you won't see it right away. You need to select a different
folder first, and then go back to the original folder for Sylpheed to
notice the mail. That's rather bothersome.
