Just out of curiosity how does this differ from
contrib/check_email_loop.pl? Help for check_email_loop is:

This script sends a mail with a specific id in the subject
via an
given smtp-server to a given email-adress. When the script
is run
again, it checks for this Email (with its unique id) on a
given pop3
account and sends another mail.

The following options are available:
   -from=text   email adress of send (for mail returnr on
errors)
   -to=text      email adress to which the mails should send to
   -pophost=text  IP or name of the POP3-host to be checked
   -popuser=text  Username of the POP3-account
   -passwd=text  Password for the POP3-user
   -poptimeout=num  Timeout in seconds for the POP3-server
   -smtphost=text    IP oder name of the SMTP host
   -smtptimeout=num   Timeout in seconds for the SMTP-server
   -statfile=text    File to save ids of messages
                        (check_email_loop.stat)
   -interval=num  Time (in minutes) that must pass by before
         sending  another Ping-mail (gibe a new try);
   -lostwarn=num      WARNING-state if more than num lost emails
   -lostcrit=num      CRITICAL 
   -pendwarn=num      WARNING-state if more than num pending
                         emails
   -pendcrit=num      CRITICAL 
   -maxmsg=num        WARNING if more than num emails on
           POP3 (default 50)
   -keeporphaned      Set this to NOT delete orphaned E-Mail
              Ping msg from POP3
   -debug             send SMTP tranaction info to stderr

 Options may abbreviated!
 LOST mails are mails, being sent before the last mail arrived
back. PENDING mails are those, which are not. (supposed to be
on the way)

Example: 
 BUILD/nagios-plugins-1.4.2/contrib/check_email_loop.pl 
-poph=host -pa=pw -popu=popts -smtph=host
-from=root at me.com -to=remailer at testxy.com -lostc=0 
-pendc=2
