    Say that you have text email file folders saved from a UNIX or Linux work station. You do not have access to POP mail, there is no PINE or ELM to make reading easier. You are stuck using the command line "mail" to go through 1000 messages. AUGH!

    If they are in mbox file format (Also known as Berkeley/Unix message file format), you can bring them over to your Windows machine to read them.

    Use the Thunderbird mail client from Mozilla (http://www.mozilla.org)

    You can import these mbox files into Thunderbird.

    If the files are in mbox file format (or if you can convert them
    into mbox file format) then simply

    1. Rename the mbox file to remove any file extension

    2. Place the renamed mbox file in the directory shown here in
    Thunderbird's settings

    Tools -> Account Settings -> Local Folders
    Local directory: [_________________________________]

    3. Restart Thunderbird

    Where does Thunderbird store the Inbox on the Windows XP machine?


    You can find this in Thunderbird's settings

    Tools -> Account Settings -> (select account) -> Server Settings
    Local directory: [_________________________________]


    Tools -> Account Settings -> Local Folders
    Local directory: [_________________________________]
