It seems to me that using search term tag:unread will help you. Try this
in the *hello* buffer:

    z tag:unread

You'll go directly to tree view and unread messages will show with
normal colours and read messages with grey colour. Commands "n" and "p"
will skip over read messages ("N" and "P" won't). You can configure
saved searches to start with tree view.
