       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>]

       WMbiff  displays  the status of up to five mailboxes. It gives informa-
       tion about new mail, if any, or total number of messages. It  also  has
       mail  retrieval  capabilies, and can be configured to do this automati-
       cally. At the moment, UNIX-style, maildir, POP3, APOP and  IMAP4  mail-
       boxes  are  supported.   WMbiff  also  supports  Licq history files and
       gnomeicu, displaying the number of new messages in  your  running  ses-
       sion, 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 mail-
       box,  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

       Pressing mouse button 1 will execute a command, defined in  the  user's

       -h     Show summary of options.

       -v     Show version of program.

       -display <display name>
              Use an alternate X Display.

       -geometry <geometry>
              Initial window position.

       -c <filename>
              Use specified configuration file instead of ~/.wmbiffrc.

       -debug Print verbose log of progress.

       -fg <color>
              Use specified X11 color.  Implies -font default, unless overrid-

       -font <font>
              Use  specified  X11 font instead of the LED pixmap.  This may be
              more readable or suitable for some non-US characters.  The  spe-
              cial  font "default" tells wmbiff to use a compile time default.

       -hi <color>
              Use specified X11 color for new mail  counters.   Implies  -font
              default, unless overridden.
