I really wish I could help you, but I can't quite figure out what you are trying to say. I think I might understand your mail problem a little, but.... I know that english is obviously not your first language, but could you try and be just a little more clear about what it is exactly that you want to be able to do? I think we may be able to help you better with a little more information.

If you use a window manager such as fluxbox, blackbox or windowmaker that supports dockapps, then you can get little dockapps to check email every so often. I use wmnotify to check my mailbox every 5 minutes.

Oh... I get it. Yeah. You are looking for applets or dockapps.

I reccommend:
DockApp Warehouse
