In fact, it is already like that. In the real world.

It's just your provider that's messed up. And I am not willing to break the
plugin for everybody (including myself) to workaround a provider bug / design.

Obviously not enough. I already mentioned in comment #1 that I would be willing
to apply a (clean) patch. It's just that I am unlikely to do it myself anytime

The setting should be configurable, preferably per Mailbox.

I'm not sure what setting you are refering to. On that page, there's an option
for setting the window manager urgency hint on unread messages. That's
something else, and has nothing to do with popups or the like.
