It does not matter how is email stored at email provider's side as how
already explained by Eli you may use programs like `movemail' or
`imapsync' or `isync' or `fetchmail' to move it from provider to local

Or are you reading email straight through shell on the remote server?

Though that all does not solve the issue that Emacs does not handle

There is one attempt to handle maildirs in the library:

;; Url: http://github.com/nicferrier/emacs-maildir

I use that library sometimes, though I consider that library

Due to lack of complete Maildir support in Emacs I am using `mutt'
email client within terminal, that works well. It invokes emacsclient
from Emacs terminal or vterm library.
