biff: a mail notification tool

Distribution Debian unstable
Abteilung mail
Quelle biff
Version 1:0.17.pre20000412-5
Maintainer Dave Holland <>
Beschreibung biff is a small program that prints a message to your terminal
when new email arrives. Actually, the message is printed by
the comsat daemon, and biff just enables/disables the u+x
permission flag for the terminal, which comsat uses to determine
whether or not to write to your terminal.
biff is mainly of historic interest, since there are much better
alternatives (such as xlbiff and gbuffy) that are network-aware and
do not require a daemon. Although there are no known security
problems, running additional services is often considered risky.
By default, the biff service is disabled. To use biff email
notification, you must enable this service by running 'update-inetd
--enable biff' after the package is installed. You may also need
to modify the configuration of your mail transport agent to enable
comsat notification.
