There is no straightforward way to do this. You would have to use a third-party software tool, like this one:

The only way I have been able to get Apple MBOX files to Outlook on Windows was to use a conversion tool. 

 

http://applemailtopst.com/ that I have used previously and it worked perfectly. The price is quite reasonable at $39 and they offer you the ability to preview the conversion to ensure it will work for free and this application also allows you to convert apple mail files directly from apple mail on mac. 

 

However, please note that the last time I used this was for a 2013 conversion. Since then I personally, and advise my clients, friends, and family to use a cloud based email solution (like O365 with hosted Exchange) so you avoid this problem in the future.

Thanks for the solution, I am using Apple Mail to PST Converter to convert my apple mail email database to Outlook 2016 for windows format. This application works great.
