Mozilla email recovery

#1 Post by SteveSabrier » 30 Jun 2014, 17:39

Has anyone had any experience recovering Mozilla (SeaMonkey specifically) email files? My research generically calls them mbox files? Thunderbird and presumably SeaMonkey use the mboxrd variation.

When I run fidentity on an existing file it is reported as html. These files have no extension so I am a bit perplexed as to how to design a custom signature. They are named Inbox, Sent, Trash, and whatever folder name the user may create. As best I can tell they are ascii files starting with the text "From -". A photorec.sig file containing
custom 0 "From -"
returns far more files than I can analyze.

Any thoughts?

Also, what would be the signature for files identified as html by fidentify?

Thanks.
