Any Unix based mail client will be able to read the .mbx files. And any
mail program can can import Unix mailboxes (or Eudora mailboxes as they
are the same format) should be able to import them too.

      I'm using MailScanner to archive all email for a particular
      domain in both maildir and mbox formats.

      In my archive.rules I have:
      FromOrTo: *
      FromOrTo: * /data/mail_archive/

      Everything appears to work great.  I get daily directoies in
      /data/mail_archive/ that contain the maildir files
      and I have a cron job that rotates the mbx file weekly.

      My question is what's the best way to read these?  I've
      played with Thunderbird and Outlook express and I don't see a
      good way to import the archive.  Is there another application
      out there that would allow for easy viewing of the archives?
      (both formats).
