KMail can only notify if it is running.

I run fetchmail in daemon mode to transfer any POP mail from my ISP into
the statndard mailbox /var/mail/'username'.

A number of desktop applications are available to give visual indication
of new mail in the mailbox such as xbiff or xmailbox; I use the latter.

When the mail icon indicates mail present I can call kmail; which is setup
to read from the mailbox; and process it.
