English translation:If anything has come by/in the American ???('pop) then ???(notara) I'll get in touch
Explanation:
I think that the message has not be transcribed exactly at the speaker would have done. I am reading it as the following.

アメリカ の ポポ(?) で 何か 来おったら、ノタラ(?)連絡します。

I am afraid that I don't understand "popo" or "notara".

I am assuming that the speaker was speaking in a dialect (probably western Japanese) that allows the form
verb stem plus conjugations of "oru,"
to mean something similar to
te form of verb plus iru

We are not there yet! Umm....

That does make sense as I now have a little more context to go on. Plus I think it was extremely colloquial.

  -> Sure it is. Perhaps I should have made it more plain that I was guessing. To me (and the asker) this was clear.
