       gnubiff - a mail notification program supporting GTK+ and GNOME


       gnubiff [options]


       gnubiff  is  a mail notification program that checks for mail, displays
       headers when new mail has arrived and allow to read first lines of  new
       messages.  It relies on the GNOME and GTK libraries but can be compiled
       and used with or without GNOME support. Supported protocols  are  pop3,
       apop,  imap4,  mh,  qmail  and mailfile.  Furthermore, gnubiff is fully
       configurable with a lot of options like polltime, poptime, sounds, mail
       reader, mailbox names, etc. and can also filter spam. Note that gnubiff
       is not a mail reader even if it offers the possibility of reading  very
       first  lines  of  new  messages. If you send some requests for specific
       features to be implemented, keep that in mind!


       gnubiff accepts the following command line options:

       -c filename, --config filename
              Use  the  specified  file  as  configuration  file  (default  is
