what is a .box file?

Files saved in a format using the BOX extension are used by a wide variety of email management programs, most of which are older versions of currently released email management applications, and these BOX files are generally classified as data files. These are also more commonly referred to as email mailbox files, because a file with the .box extension contains data that can be referenced by the associated email management program to provide the user with access to a list of email messages stored inside the BOX file, and these email messages can be individually opened using supported email management applications. These email management programs integrated with support for creating, using and viewing the content of these BOX files include the IBM Lotus Notes software, the Calypso Email application and Foxmail among others. As of this writing, most currently released versions of email management software use the DBX and .box formats instead of the BOX format, though the applications mentioned earlier can be installed in Microsoft Windows-based systems to implement support for these BOX files.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .box files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .box. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
