email checker which play .wav files


I'm looking for the POP3 email checker program which is running in the background and check the email periodically and when a new mail is found, it will play a .wav file specified by the user.
Any suggestion?

I use a procmail recepie and cat a sound when new mail is delivered to my inbox. Sorry, I can't access my e-mail machine now or I would post the receipe.

# Common e-mail tools
sendmail - postfix - sends mail to local users (and internet when configured correctly)
fetchmail - gets mail from internet accounts (non-Hotmail type)
procmail - sorts and delivers into separate mailboxes
mutt - mail client that sucks less than all the others
