MAVBIFF(1) FreeBSD System Manager's Manual MAVBIFF(1)
mavbiff - be notified if mail arrives
mavbiff consist of a window with a list of mailboxes in
it. If mail arrives in one of them, the button of the
mailbox will change colour. Pressing that button will
popup the mailbox to the front.
The configuration file consists of groups of four lines:
Label of the mailbox in mavbiff
Physical location of the file on disk
Name of the X window with the mail reader for this mailbox
The last empty line of the last entry should be removed.
(Yeah I know it's lame)
See the file dot-mavbiffrc for a sample configuration.
I startup my mailboxes like this:
xterm -title "MUTT - mbox" -geometry 80x60 -e mutt -f=mbox
So my xterm has the title "MUTT - mbox". In the third line
of that mailbox in the config-file that name is returning.
