Using the crontab is great, but there are other tools out there on Leopard that do something similar to crontab and on Leopard, its called launchd. To create a new entry, make a new file in ~/Library/LaunchAgents/net.laptop.getmail.plist with the content of:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8">
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
    <plist version="1.0">

then execute:

    launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/net.laptop.getmail.plist
