Opening OBI files

Did your computer fail to open an OBI file? We explain what OBI files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your OBI files.

What is an OBI file?

Files with the .obi extension are most commonly associated with the Microsoft Outlook software application. Microsoft Outlook is a part of the Microsoft Office Suite of software applications. The OBI files contain the RSS subscription names and properties that are used to store RSS subscription feeds in a user's outlook profile. These files are stored in the XML file format.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
