This Tool displays the status of your mailbox and warns you when new
mail has arrived. It is designed to look the same as the Blackbox toolbar 
(Blackbox is a Windowmanager for X11).
To copy this look a great deal of the code is taken from Blackbox.

The files Image.cc (.hh) are taken from the Blackbox,
only one class-name was changed.

The files LinkedListed.cc (.hh) are taken from Blackbox without any change.

You can always get the latest release at:
			http://bbtools.windsofstorm.net/

Options:
--------

The mailtool.position is given as +x+y or -x-y (or combination)
where -x-y is the (x,y) distance of the right bottom of screen
to the right bottom of bbmail.

So position -0-0 puts the application in the lower right conner of the
screen.

bbmail -w(ithdrawn):	Withdrawn, place bbmail in Blackbox Slit.
bbmail -s(hape):	Don't show frame window.

See bbmail -h for all command-line options.

Pop-support: 
You can get the new and total mail information using an external program
(eg. fetchpop), without the need for getting the mail to your machine
(see data/README.bbmail).

Netscape-support:
see data/README.bbmail

For configuration options see INSTALL and data/README.bbmail
