Evolution is using a plugin to notify about new messages, and this
plugin is listening for events invoked by Evolution itself.
See the source code at [1] for more information.

Nonetheless, if I understand your request properly, then it was covered
by [2] and is part of the latest git master.

Note also that there are some settings in
Edit->Plugins->Mail-Notification, tab Configuration, where you can
influence how the notifications should behave.

If you are looking for some (usually) simple tasks, then there is a
keyword gnome-love, which developers use to mark some bugs as good for
beginners, thus maybe go through them. Note that something what might
look easy at the beginning can turn to be hard task. See the list for
evolution itself at [3].
