Why are you assuming that the presence of $MAIL implies an obsolete
mail reading system? And why are you assuming that IMAP or POP3 are
desireable? While those things may be true, they're certainly not
necessarily so. I have no need for IMAP or POP3, for example.

To answer the original question, it all depends on what you're
using to read mail, and where it stores its information about which
messages are unread.
