imapbiff is a small perl/tk program that notifies you of new mail in an IMAP mail account. It only checks IMAP accounts, not local mail files or POP accounts. When you do not have any unread messages in your IMAP Inbox, it will display a mailbox icon with the flag lowered. When it detects new messages in your IMAP Inbox, it will beep and raise the flag. Whenever it is querying the IMAP server, a "?" is displayed to indicate that it is checking for messages.
