Displays headers when new mail has arrived

'gbiff2' periodically checks for mail and displays headers when new mail has arrived. It relies on the GNOME and GTK libraries but can be compiled and used with or without GNOME support. Supported protocols are pop3, apop, imap4, mh, qmail and mailfile. Furthermore, gbiff2 is fully qconfigurable with options like polltime, poptime, sounds, mail reader, mailbox title, etc.
