Comsat is the server process which receives reports of incoming mail
and notifies users if they have requested this service.  "biff" is
the program that requests comsat service "biff y", and may be placed
in a user's startup file if they'd like to hear a beep and trash
their console with each new piece of junk mail.  ;-)
Biff was the name of Heidi Stettner's dog, who barked when the
mailman came.  Biff was well known to many of the early BSD developers
living in Evans Hall at U.C. Berkeley.
