How do I import an MBOX file into my local mail client?


The University of Wisconsin Knowledge Base details several options here, including importing MBOX data into Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail, and Mozilla Thunderbird.

To convert your MBOX file into a Microsoft PST file, use the MBOX to PST Converter

We only export Gmail records in the MBOX file format and do not provide it in the PST file format.

To convert your MBOX file into a Microsoft PST file, you will have to use conversion software. An example is SoftLay's Backupify Converter

Note: Datto has no affiliation with SoftLay or their Backupify Converter application. Any questions or support requests related to the Backupify Converter software should be directed to SoftLay. 

To contact Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection support, click here to submit a Support Request, or click here for more contact options.
