ixbiff - notify user when mail arrives by blinking keyboard LEDs

Ixbiff blinks the keyboard LEDs when new mail arrives. The keyboard LEDs used depend upon the daemon's configuration.

For obvious reasons only three mailboxes can be checked.

Currently, ixbiff is Linux specific and requires root access.

Ixbiff supports the standard UNIX mbox format as well as qmail's Maildir format.

Garrett M. tells us:
It's an inbox monitor but, here's the cool part: your keyboard LEDs
light up when you get new mail (awesome).

Way cool.
