WMBiff - A dockable Mailbox Monitor
wmbiff [-display <display name>] [-geometry +XPOS+YPOS] [-c <filename>]
[-h] [-v] [-debug] [-fg <foreground-color>] [-font <X11 font>|default]
[-hi <highlight-color>] [+w]
WMbiff displays the status of up to five mailboxes. It shows the number
of new mail messages, if any, or the total number of messages. It also
has mail retrieval capabilies, and can be configured to do this
automatically. At the moment, UNIX-style, maildir, POP3, APOP and IMAP4
mailboxes are supported. WMbiff also supports Licq history files and
gnomeicu, displaying the number of new messages in your running
session, as if they were mail.
The mailboxes are displayed in 5 different lines, each one with its own
description of up to five chars. If no mail is present in a given
mailbox, WMbiff will display the total number of mails in cyan. If
there’s new mail in the box, the number of new messages will be
displayed in yellow. When new mail arrives, this number will optionally
flash for a small period of time, and also optionally, a command can be
executed on mail arrival (for example, opening your mail reader or
playing a sound file).
Pressing mouse button 1 will execute a command, defined in the user’s
config file. Mouse button 3 will execute a command to fetch mail, if
defined. To restart wmbiff, press mouse button 1 while holding control
and shift keys, or send it SIGUSR1.

When using TLS (IMAPS), keep going, even if the server’s
certificate is invalid. Invalid certificates have expired, have
a different hostname than you connected to, are corrupt, or have
been revoked. Do not use this option unless wmbiff fails and
suggests it to you, and even then, be careful and consider
alerting your mail system administrator first. The need to use
this option is a sign of server misconfiguration.
+w Do not use the "withdrawn" state: the wmbiff window will not be
captured as an icon and placed in the dock, but will instead
have its own window. This option starts with a ’+’ for
consistency with other software programs: many use ’-w’ to mean
