We have a large amount of data stored in what I guess is the standard mbox format. I'd like to be able to view these files when I find them using mozilla. If I click on the file, mozilla will dutifully open them, and render them as text; but that's annoying because reading email messages that way is tough--- you can't follow the thread of conversation, examine attachments, etc. A real pain. Today I do 'mutt -Rf /path/to/mailbox'. But if the mailbox file I find is only accessible via HTTP, then I have to first download it. All of this is very cumbersome. I really just want to click and have the mailnews UI take over. As a first step, it would be nice to have enough UI support to point mail/news at a file, HTTP or FTP URI and ask it to try to open that as a mailbox; I'm not sure exactly how that would look in the UI. I guess care would need to be taken to handle the read-only-ness of such mailboxes, but perhaps that's already in mozilla. I don't want to consider such mailboxes as "local folders"-- I just want to browse them like any other content. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
I've just noticed that if I serve a single email up over HTTP, mozilla seems to think that it is a mail message, and does a nice job of pretty- printing it. However, this doesn't work properly for mail spools--- it seems to think the whole spool is one giant message. In any case, I'd rather mozilla opened the email or the spool up in mailnews.
