EML, MBX, DBX, PST file Viewer
With MailNavigator, you can extract messages from the mailboxes of the majority of popular mail programs.
You can open EML, MBX, PST or DBX file and read the messages in it, and you can also do a search of the messages in the mailboxes. The processing language of the filters includes the standard operators: OR, AND, NOT, NEAR, their synonyms, and parentheses for defining the order of operators. Filters can be used on the message content and on some fields of the message header.
The following types of mailboxes can be searched:
EML files of Windows Live Mail and Windows Mail (Vista)
PST files of MS Outlook
DBX files of Outlook Express
MBS files of Opera Mail
SNM files of Netscape Messenger or Netscape Collabra
MBX files of Eudora Mail
TBB, MSB files of The Bat
and other message files (UNIX mailbox, Mozilla Thunderbird, Eserv, FidoNet..)
How to read mbx file format?
The format of Mbx files is rather simple. It is an ordinary text file (in the format RFC-822) containing messages, and can be read by the usual text editor.
Unlike the format mbx, file format dbx is quite complex. So we advise you not to try to extract information independently from a dbx file. You can use MailNavigator as a dbx file viewer, and you can also use MailNavigator to extract messages from dbx file and to export messages to the format mbx. To do this, you should use the menu command: Message | Save as...
Unlike dbx and mbx file formats, the pst format (MS Outlook mailboxes) is protected by Microsoft. MailNavigator can access *.pst files only indirectly, through the mechanism of Outlook OLE. In effect, a search of messages in Outlook folders is achieved by Outlook's own resources.
To access a PST file, this file must be accessible from MS Outlook as a mail folder. It must be available for opening not only as an external file, but must be directly accessible in MS Outlook. In this case, MailNavigator will find the list of MS Outlook folders and the necessary folder can be loaded, used for a message search, or used for export outlook messages to the text format.
MailNavigator can be used for recovering the information contained in mail archives. If, as a result of computer crash, Outlook Express or another mail client cannot read its message archives, you can try opening them in MailNavigator and exporting them back.
Version 1.8 of MailNavigator adds the capability of exporting messages in Eudora Mail format. As the mbx format of Eudora mailbox files is rather popular, this means that now you can export messages from MailNavigator to Outlook Express and most other popular mail programs.
