Program to notify you that new mail has arrived

Post by Bruce A. Buhl » Mon, 01 May 1995 04:00:00

Does anyone know of a program that will notify you in some way that you
have received new mail?  Since the network that I'm on has serveral
servers that receive mail, BIFF only notifies me if mail is received on
the server that I'm logged in on at that time.  Thanks in advance,



1. How to notify arriving mail?

I just tuned my linux box to receive mail.  But it doesn't notify any
arriving mail.  I knew long before that in unix "biff on" can do this.
But in my system (1.2.8 kernel from Slackware 2.3.0) just has xbiff (which
doesn't notify any thing, ether), but no biff.  How?

Thanks in advance.
