How to open a file with .mbox extension?

Some of my clients use Google Apps and Gmail. When we have to terminate an account I always use Google Takeout to backup all data for each user, before I delete their account from Google. Google takeout will create a backup of all E-mails and put them in a file with extension .mbox
I tested many different programs to open the mbox files and this is the one I found works the best.

Smart Lock doesn’t work on Sony Xperia XA2 running Android 8.0 Oreo

I setup Smart Lock with my home address and it worked great for couple weeks. One day it just stopped working. Smart lock on my Sony Xperia XA2 would just show white screen and no settings at all – no details. This is how I fixed it.

  1. Go to Settings – Security & Location – Trust Agents
  2. Disable Smart Lock (Google)
  3. reboot the phone
  4. Go to Settings – Security & Location – Trust Agents
  5. enable Smart Lock (Google)
  6. go back
  7. click on Smart lock
  8. and the problem is fixed
