How to Convert MBOX to PST on Outlook 2007

Save

MBOX files are simple mailbox files that store each email message that you receive in sequential order in a single text file. This format is not supported by Microsoft Outlook, so in order to import your MBOX file into Outlook 2007, you must use one of the few MBOX to PST conversion applications available. Once you download a program and convert the file, you can import the converted PST file to Outlook 2007 using the program's import and export wizard.
