What is a MBS file?

Mbs file extension has Opera Mailbox file type, developed by Opera Software, which is associated with the "misc files" category.

Opera Mail is an email client integrated in the Opera Web browser. It creates mailbox files with this extension. They are used to store email messages from a chosen folder (inbox, drafts, etc.). This format is very similar to the one used by Mozilla Thunderbird. You can open and export MBS files to other formats with the help of the Aid4Mail utility. The standard Outlook .MBX, Windows Live Mail, and Mozilla Thunderbird formats are available to choose from. In addition to that, you can use ABC Amber Opera Converter that allows converting MBS files into readable formats: .DOC, .TXT, .RTF, .HTML, and .PDF. The MBS2MBX utility is also an option for converting MBS files from Opera 7 (and later) into .MBX files. However, this method does not guarantee that all messages will be translated correctly.
