How to convert MBOX files into PST format?

Average User Rating (4.5/5 Reviews)

Apple Mail to Outlook migration becomes necessary when users switch over to Windows OS from Mac OS and start using Outlook as their email client. And the discontinued MBOX email client Eudora was helpful for Apple Mail users to migrate their MBOX mailboxes to MS Outlook.

Of course, performing this migration is not easy, but you can definitely manage to convert MBOX files into PST format. For this, you first need to import all the Apple Mail mailbox data to an MBOX file. Follow the steps below to do it:

On Apple Mail:
  • Open Apple Mail on your system.
  • On the File menu, click on Import Mailboxes option.
  • In the Import dialogue box, select File in mbox format and click on the Continue button.
  • Browse the location where the MBOX file is saved.
  • Select the MBOX file which you want to import.
  • The importing process for the selected MBOX file will be started. Wait until the process gets successfully completed and click Done when it is complete.

The imported mailbox is located in the Import section of Apple mail. Now, you must have Eudora to complete the conversion as you cannot directly migrate these files to Outlook Express and then to MS Outlook. Follow the steps given to convert emails from each email client:

On Eudora:
  • Rename the MBOX file e.g., if it is "InboxMBOX", rename it "InboxMBOX.mbx".
  • Move "InboxMBOX.mbx", to the directory in which Eudora stores its files ("C:\Documents and Settings\ Application Data\Qualcomm\Eudora" )
  • Launch Eudora on your system and double-click the InboxMBOX.mbx file and Close Eudora.
On Outlook Express:
  • Open Outlook Express. On the File menu, click on Import -> Messages.
  • Select Eudora from the list and click on Next.
  • Browse the location in which you have moved the InboxMBOX.mbx file, and click on OK.
  • Click on Next -> Next again and then Finish.

Imported mailbox is generally present in the "Local Folders" section.

On MS Outlook:
  • Open MS Outlook on your system.
  • Go to the File tab, click Open >Import.
  • In the Import and Export Wizard, select Import Internet Mail and Addresses and click on Next.
  • Now select the Outlook Express option (the Import Mail option given there should be checked). Click on Next; click Finish.

You can now access the files easily from Outlook.
