    I posted this on Offtopic main forums but figured this might be a better place to post also.

    Is it possible to download say the Sent Mail, Drafts or whatever file and then read it? I know I can open it in wordpad but it looks messy and doesn't decode attachments. Is there any program I can use to open this file be it "Sent Mail", "Drafts", "Trash" or whatever folder name I've created.

    If it's a standard mbox file, you can read it with mailx.

    e.g. mail -f ~/mail/SentMail

    Know any program on a PC that can do this? I downloaded the file onto my PC. What I did for now since I can't find a program to do this with is upload that mbox file to another mail account and access it through webmail.
