Summary: A mail checker client and the comsat mail checking server.
The biff client and comsat server are an antiquated method of
asynchronous mail notification.  Although they are still supported,
most users use their shell's MAIL variable (or csh shell's mail
variable) to check for mail, or a dedicated application like xbiff,
xmailbox, or the GNOME mail check applet.  If the comsat service is
not enabled, biff won't work and you'll need to use something else.

You may want to install biff if you'd like to be notified when mail
arrives. However, you should probably check out the more modern
methodologies of mail notification instead.
