Nescape Inbox file recovery

By Sharkini Brother #2 ·
Scenario: A) I renamed my Inbox file (not the Inbox.snm file) as a .txt file. In doing so I lost access to mail attachments. B) I then tried to rename the inbox.txt file back to "inbox." and use it again in Netscape. File now is empty.
Q: Is there any way to recover the mail messages and attachment info?

Thanks ---

no recovery possible. ounce you changed the .snm file to .txt and then back to .snm the coding is no longer recognized by netscape and all data will be lost.

sorry

Hi -- Sorry for the delay.
Followup Question:
Even tho' formating has been lost on .snm file, I would think the raw ASCII text remained sitting on the drive and could be retrieved in some way to extract the messages.

Them just open the file with a text editor.

notepad, windows write, or word can open the file just to extract the ascii text for use or reading of the message. If the message is in HTML format it will be a little more difficult. As for attachments they are probably gone.
