What is MBOX file?

.MBOX is a file extension of the mailbox files that are used to organize the email messages. Normally, these are stored in the email storage system. You can find them quite often but cannot open them. This is actually a text file which stores all the messages sent from the email. It starts with the header “FROM” and saves all the messages one after another. If you are using an email client which is run from the UNIX server, you will see this kind of files. Nowadays there are other applications that actually run these files or store such files.

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the MBOX file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the MBOX file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the MBOX file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the MBOX file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the MBOX file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
