imapbiff is a small perl/tk program that notifies you of new mail in an IMAP mail account.  It looks like xbiff program. It only checks IMAP accounts, not local mail files or POP accounts. When you do not have any unread messages in your IMAP Inbox, it will display a mailbox icon with the flag lowered. When it detects new messages in your IMAP Inbox, with the default icons it will beep and raise the flag. Whenever it is querying the IMAP server, a "?" is displayed to indicate that it is checking for messages.


  • SSL support with certificate validation
  • Interchangeable PNG icons
  • Automatic resizing according to icons size
  • Tip showing number of messages
  • Small and light
