Try Kmail with or without fetchmail, it's a pretty nice combo and fetch
mail will check your POP3 server as often as you like. (I use fetchmail on
the machine to download all our mail accounts and users use whatever they
like (Pine, Kmail, Balsa is less popular because of some peculiarities
and I haven't been able to work out Aethera+fetchmail)
