I'm on a number of mailing lists, and I sort my mail using
procmail into several inboxes. I find this little xbiff-like
program extremly useful. The port (mail/xbuffy) comes in a
default (athena) and a motif flavor. I had problems getting it
to compile properly with Xaw95 and neXtaw on amd64 and might
come back to these later.
xbuffy: xbiff-like program for multiple inboxes
This is xbuffy, an X program designed to watch multiple mail
folders for new mail.
By default, it shows the name of your standard folder for
incoming mail and the number of unread messages in a simple box,
but it can be made to keep track of several more folders.
Left-clicking the the box of a folder pops up a summary window
showing From: and Subject: lines of the unread messages within.
It can also be made to launch an email application, such as
mutt, when you click with button 2 on a mail folder box.
This is a very handy tool for people that sort incoming mail
into several mail folders using e.g. procmail.
The port may be fetched from here:
Tested successfully on amd64 and i386.
