you could look into diald. it provides isp connect service on demand or
can be configured to keep a connection up.
other than that you can do what i do and use fetchpop (off of sunsite) to
poll your pop server every five minutes for mail. it runs as a daemon, is
small, compiles easily, and is easy to use. it also keeps my connection
up by generating the small amount of network activity that it does.
