This description is not good. So I am changing it to:
youbin is a kind of biff in the network age. When youbin is used, the
mail spool of a certain, specific machine (mail server) is observed to
inform the arrival of mail to a user at an arbitrary machine through
the network. On the other hands, the conventional "biff" informs only
the user who logs in at the machine with the mail spool. Combining
with POP, youbin eliminate a lot of NFS mount of mail spool for mail
Since youbin is designed with event driven, the user is promptly
informed of status change of mail spool caused by mail arriving and
Thanks for your advice.
