And if you accidentally use outlook (yes, its from MS, but its good enough
anyway), you can set it up to download mails periodically, say ever 20-30
minutes. as long as you provide a default-connection (dial up or network)
for the pop-account, it will automatically dial-up, receive its mails and
disconnect again. I was using this before I went flat-rate.
Also, there are tons of free programs on the net which periodically issue a
ping to the dial-up connection. In a normally set up Windoze-System, a just
closed dial-up-connection will be automatically opened again when a ping is
