MHP file extension - Mailshift Internet mail document

What is mhp file? How to open mhp files?

File type specification:

Email related data file type icon Email related data file type

The mhp file extension seems to be mainly related to some old and apparently discontinued e-mail client for Unix and Unix-based operating systems called Mailshift.

It looks like that .mhp file from Mailshift represents e-mail document or message.

This mhp file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.

The default software associated to open mhp file:

MailShift  Linux/Unix software

Mailshift seems to have been some old e-email client utility for Unix/Linux. It doesn't seem to be used anymore.

Help how to open:

As far as we know, you can work with this type of .mhp files only in the original Mailshift. But perhaps you can view the content using a text editor.

How to convert:

It may have been possible to export the message to some common format in the original program, but since it is no longer available it is hard to determine if that was really the case.
