BUFFY(1) General Commands Manual BUFFY(1)


buffy - Mail folder monitor. Monitor new and unread messages in a collection of mail folders.


buffy [options]


Buffy is a program that displays a compact summary of your mail folders, and allows to invoke a command (usually a mail reader) on them. It is written with the intent of being a handy everyday tool for people handling large volumes of mail. For mutt users, this can be a nice front-end to supplement the simple built-in folder browser when one has many folders to keep track of.


This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-').

Help options:

print commandline help and exit.
print the program version and exit.
output the buffy manpage and exit.

Other options:

enable verbose output.
