Location of Netscape Mailbox Files

Netscape uses the generic MBOX file format with a twist. The MBOX files have no extension. So you will find files that have the same name as mailbox folders in Netscape, but with no suffix. For example:

  • Inbox (the Inbox with no suffix),
  • Drafts (the Drafts with no suffix),
  • Sent (the Sent with no suffix),
  • and more.

Subfolders are identified by .SBD suffix (Contain more MBOX files). This SBD subdirectory is used by Netscape to maintain the folder strcuture of mailbox folders.
