You don't want to use POP as this removes the messages from your inbox on the web GMail. I find that GMail works with IMAP IDLE which means just connecting to the mail box is enough to be alerted on new messages... no need to set automatic retrieval. If you set auto retrieval then it has to download all the messages. Just set automatic retrieval off and then set the number of headers to get to 30 or something, and it will always get your most recent 30 messages per mailbox.
