What is a mbox file and how do I open a mbox file?

The MBOX file extension was developed for an E-mail Mailbox File that is used in organizing messages sent and received as emails. Normally considered as a generic term, electronic messages are stored and consolidated in a single file as plain text. MBOX is a file format that represents encoded information intended for storage in a computer file. It shows how bits are used as medium for digital storage and maybe free or proprietary. There are file formats that are used for special types of data like PNG which stores bitmapped images using data compression algorithms called LOSSLESS data compression. These images are reconstructed compressed data copied exactly from the original data. There are also other formats that use another form of compression called LOSSY compression. This type compresses images by eliminating unnecessary information called bits, thereby allowing the file to be smaller in size. Examples of these are TIFF (Tagged Image File Format), MNG (Multiple-image Network Graphics), GZIP (Unix Tool) and ZIP file formats. Similar compression technology is implemented into the consolidation of multiple email messages into MBOX files.
