    Hi

    I have a backup of Thunderbird emails in my system in MBOX file format. I got some archive folders or MBOX archives that contain very important emails. It is really hard to open MBOX file type as all the emails are concatenated and it cannot be viewed easily. Please suggest any method to open MBOX archive so that I can read MBOX file entirely. Thanks in Advance!!

    Hi Edwin

    There are a number of email clients that can open MBOX file like Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. You can easily access your emails with the help of these email applications. You just need to import the file and open all your emails.

    OK, then you try this method to open MBOX files in MS Outlook. Follow these steps:

    1. Open Outlook and then, click on File >> Open.
    2. Hit on Import to open Import and Export Wizard.
    3. Click on Import Internet Mail and Addresses >> Next.
    4. After that, choose Outlook Express 4.x, 5.x, 6.x or Window Mail.
    5. Import Mail option should be checked and then, click on Next.
    6. Now, a user can open MBOX file in MS Outlook 2016.

    This method is fine but as I am a non-technical person, I am facing a lot of problems in opening MBOX archive. Please suggest any simple method to do so.

    You can try SysTools MBOX Viewer to open MBOX archive and read MBOX file easily. There is no technical assistance required to view MBOX file data.
