The Ixbiff Daemon

(This document is still under construction)

What is Ixbiff?

Ixbiff blinks the keyboard leds when new mail arrives. The keyboard leds used, depend on the daemon's configuration.

For obvious reasons only three mailboxes can be checked.

Currently ixbiff is Linux specific and requires root access.

Ixbiff have support for both the standard UNIX mbox format and qmail's Maildir format.

I want it!

Ixbiff is hosted on Sourceforge, so the latest version can always be downloaded the usual way:

There is a source tarball and debian package for the i386 platform. If enough people bug me about it I might release a binary tarball and/or Redhat rpm package, but I'm not really in the mood for that (:
