Fetching mail in gnus

two questions regarding fetching mails in gnus.

First: I have pop as mail source type.  Is it ok to omit all parameters except 
:program, and feed :program with the path of a shell script which in turn calls 
getmail with an appropriate configuration file containing the account 
information?  I suspect yes, but to be sure I ask.

Second: When I enter a mail group from the group buffer, all mails currently 
located in the backend (and being in the right state) are shown.  But, what's 
not yet clear to me is: Under what circumstances does gnu actually fetch mail 
from the mail source, i.e. call the shell script in my setup described above?  
Do I have to invoke some extra command I not yet found, or is this done when I 
enter the group, or periodically according to some configuration settings,...?  

Thanks for help,
