Don't know. reportmail seems to be XEmacs-only, right?

Well, you could also use wmbiff which is my favourite mail notifier:

,----[ wmbiff ]
| At this moment, wmbiff supports unix-style, maildir, pop3, APOP, IMAP
| and IMAPS mailboxes, as well as Licq and GnomeICU history files.

Besides you can make Gnus automatically check for new mail by adding

  (gnus-demon-add-handler 'gnus-demon-scan-news 5 10)

to your configuration. See (info "(gnus)Daemons") for an explanation.
