WMBiff is an WindowMaker docking utility, that displays the
number of read and unread messages in (usually) five
mailboxes. You can also define actions to execute on new
mail arrival (for example, play a sound file),
[auto]fetchmail from a remote server, execute your mail
reader with a mouse click, or list subject lines from unread
messages. WMBiff also supports notification of incoming Licq
messages, so you can put Licq in the background.
At this moment, wmbiff supports unix-style, maildir, pop3, APOP, IMAP
and IMAPS mailboxes, as well as Licq and GnomeICU history files.
It also includes scripts to perform miscellaneous tasks. At
the moment, these include a checker for Debian security updates.
wmbiff is similar to the wmmaiload package, but features an
LED-style appearance, IMAPS support, and other minor differences.
