Open BOX File

BOX extension files usually have various formats and applications, some of which you will see below:

Generic Email Software

As its name implies, in this case, the BOX file is a mailbox format used by various email programs.

But what do they mean when they say 'Mail Program'?

With an email program, also known as an email client, the user of an email address accesses his mailbox to read his received and sent emails and to write new ones.

Email address providers offer their own email programs, such as Webmail, but you can also use other email programs, such as Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, or Apple Mail.

You can configure them for any provider's mail inboxes and also manage them simultaneously using a single program.

In this case, the BOX file extension stores collections of email messages that can be opened individually; replaced by the MBOX and DBX extension files in newer email programs.

Microsoft Store

In this second case, the BOX file is a compressed file downloaded from the Microsoft Store online, usually when upgrading the version of Windows to Windows 7.

This BOX file must be downloaded in conjunction with an EXE executable file which, when opened, unpacks the data in the BOX file and installs Windows.

It is important to note that BOX files are not designed to be opened manually.

Instead, they contain data that the associated EXE file can unpack and use in the installation process.

If you did not download an EXE file with the BOX file, you must contact store support to download the remaining files.


In this third case, the BOX file acquires a video format used by Kodicom CCTV recorders.

Kodicom is a manufacturer of hardware equipment and software systems for video surveillance.

In this case, the BOX file is a video file, therefore it is considered as multimedia, however it is not an open format, therefore it cannot be executed in any conventional program.

CARA Loudspeaker
