extensible mail biffing utility

branch: master


Netbiff is a simple and extensible mail-biffer. Its original design goals were:

  • ability to monitor multiple mailboxes

  • extensibility of user interfaces; the current code supports a text interface and a gtk interface

  • extensibility of mail backends; the current code supports mbox and imap backends

Netbiff was started in 2000. Though it does seem to still build and run flawlessly, these days even I am not using it on a day-to-day basis. I am posting it here because there has been some interest in the code. Use with caution!

To build from the git repository, you will need the mfm tool. You can git it here:
