Does EasyFind search in MBOX files

I’m a new user. Trying to use EasyFind to search in an MBOX archive on Mac 10.10.5.

I didn’t see anything about it in the user help files. I can only get it to search a folder in EML format. It does not search the same export in MBOX.


Technically, it can but it wouldn’t give a good result. It would just return the .mbox file as a positive hit.

So it does not search within the MBOX archive and search through the emails and metadata?

You could add mbox to the list of extensions (see Settings drawer) but the result wouldn’t be that useful probably.

An .mbox file is not an archive. The emails are essentially one long text document.
