That depends on the hosting party and the type of OS the webserver is running on but it comes roughly down to this
Linux or similar OS using Cron jobs:
Via webserver (see settings because this is disabled by default, see plugin config page in mantis)
*/5 * * * * lynx --dump ... eport_mail
or via command line interface
*/5 * * * * /usr/local/bin/php /path/to/mantis/plugins/EmailReporting/scripts/bug_report_mail.php

This line fetches bug reports via POP3 or IMAP every 5 minutes.

Windows or similar OS:
Via command line interface
c:\php\php.exe c:\path\to\mantis\plugins\EmailReporting\scripts\bug_report_mail.php
