WIth 200+ folders, the same pain of finding and scrolling to the folder I
want exists, as expanding the folders in the left side bar.

Maybe because whats intuitive to developers may not be intuitive to normal
end-users, and vice versa?  Obviously, I must be the only one in the world
who has run into this problem, as obviously I must be the only one in the
world who thinks the fetchmail behavior is inconsistent too (2211).  It
isn't quite noone, but onlyone (who has taken the time to document and
report it).

I've used IMP as my primary email client for the past four years so I'm not
up to speed on how some of the fat clients behave but a quick glance reveals
that most, if not all of them, have an easy way to get to the next unread
message (CTL-N in Thunderbird, shift+. in Evolution, for example).  And as
new messages come in, and your screen is refreshed, they'll take you to and
display the new message (I don't like the display part, I may not want to
read the message, but I do like having the message subject and sender shown
to me).
