One possible Thunderbird alternative to mbox is IMAP. I use Thunderbird
as my "plan-b" email client. I use it to view my IMAP folders on my
Daily Driver Desktop's Dovecot IMAP server, which holds all my email
past and present. A firewall pinhole enables me to ssh connect to my
Dovecot when out of the office.
