I have migrated from mac to windows recently, my area of work requires dealing with a lot of emails from customers, so I have some old archived apple mail .mbox files. I need to open these files in Outlook for windows. How can I import these .mbox files into Windows for Outlook?

Unfortunately, Outlook for Windows cannot import .mbox extension files. If you wish to import these files then first you will have to convert them to a format that Outlook for Windows can import, and in this case its .pst. There are no official or free tools provided for this job, however, there are third-party apps available for .mbox to .pst conversion. One is mentioned in the above link and I am mentioning another in case you need to compare: http://applemailtopst.com/how-to-convert-apple-mail-database-to-pst-directly-on-mac/

 

I hope this helps. Thanks
