[xmonad] XMoBar Question

I tried to switch from dzen2 to xmobar as statusbar for my xmonad but
ran into these three problems:

1. I want my Mailcount (how many new mails are there in my Maildir on my
harddisk) to be displayed. How can I achieve this? Should I run a
external program? Im searching for a solution which needs the less cpu
(and io) as possible, as xmonad is running on my notebook. An external
shellscript would do a big overhead, so is there a better solution?

2. I wanted to draw a progressbar (oder a rectangle) for the
battery-status and the volume. How can this be done?

3. Is there a posilibity to draw icons like dzen2? I just wanted a green
envelope for "no new mails" and a red one for "new mails". Is this

I know this might not be the right place to ask the question, but
perhaps someone can help me.
