This has something to do with IMAP IIRC. Some other MUAs are doing this
also, like TkRat (I think that almost all IMAP capable MUAs do that).

One workaround would be to set 

#########################################################
# Display the number of messages and/or new messages    #
# in the mailbox. This option can not be used if you    #
# have more then one mailbox specified.                 #
# Modes:                                                #
#       0       Disable feature (default)               #
#       1       NumOfNewMail/NumOfMail                  #
#       2       NumOfNewMail                            #
#       3       NumOfMail                               #
#########################################################
NumOfMsgMode 1

and the 'NoMail' pixmap to the same as the 'OldMail' pixmap. 
Then there will be a small '0/1' in the corner (displaying one old
message) and only an animation when real new mail is there.
