You don't have cron? What kind of system are you running?

You can just write a short script called e.g. that does
your mailchecking in a loop containing e.g. a "sleep 300".
Start this script in the background in your .xinitrc:

~/bin/ &

# run dwm as before here

# make sure the script is killed when dwm exits
