Hello everyone,

 

A while back for security reasons I backed up all my emails on my hard drive with the help of export function in Apple Mail. Exporting the email files created a single .mbox file on my hard drive (approx 27GB). Now as my mac is too old now and I have switched over to Windows system, I needed to know how can I import this .mbox file in my windows outlook. I am using the latest version of Office 365 but I couldn't make out how to import this apple mail exported file into windows outlook. I have some import emails and attachments that I need to access now and will also need in future. Please help.

I found these steps that you can try:

 

  1. Copy the .mbox file to your Mac. A USB flash drive or an external hard drive is probably the easiest way to do that.
  2. On your Mac, in Outlook 2011, select "Outlook 2011 -> File -> Import" menu command.
  3. Select "Contacts or messages from a Text file" option.
  4. Click on 'Continue' (Right arrow button).
  5. Select "Import messages from an MBOX-format text file".
  6. Click on 'Continue' (Right arrow button)
  7. Select the MBOX file(s) you'd like to import. (If you are unable to select MBOX files because they are greyed out, please see the next section).
  8. Click on "Import" button.
  9. Click on "Finish" button.
  10. You will find the imported mailboxes under "ON MY COMPUTER". (Note: If "ON MY COMPUTER" section is in collapsed mode, click on the triangle next to it to expand it).

 

I found them on this website, if this doesn't solve your problem you can try the additional steps there.

an application called apple mail to pst converter (http://applemailtopst.com/) is capable of doing such migration. Thanks for help anyways.
