I've found no way to view or import mbox in mozilla. That would be really handy. - maybe I just haven't found it. - But there is no way in the Import dialog to import these files or in the add-folder dialog to add an mbox file.
Doesn't Mozilla use mbox format itself? Can you not just copy an existing mbox mail file into your Mozilla mail directory? A generalised "mbox" import function would be nice though, perhaps being able to open an mbox file much like you can an archive (.pst ?) file in Outlook.
This should be possible -- we have a unix-only movemail feature that does just this. I just have never used it. Try searching for info on "movemail" on mozilla.org... Meanwhile, sending this to the movemail bug component.

Ever confirmed: true
well, I also thought it would use mbox natively but how do I add it? I created a new folder and copied the other folder into the right directory and replaced it with the original void folder but it didn't work. - it was still shown as void. (but it had 2.5 MB)
Hakan: as you can see in my report is based on windows. - And AFAIK movemail only imports mbox messages into inbox but I'm not sure. whatever. - It would be nice to make this possible on windows and unix using an import or open menu option. thanks for your fast response! - this is great.
Oh, sorry, didn't know you were using Windows. Well, it should be possible to import mbox files with Windows as well -- because as far as I know, that's what Mozilla uses internally.
