How to convert Google MBOX to PST for Mac and Windows Outlook?
Google MBOX (Gmail Takeout)
If you have an MBOX file from any source, the fact remains that it is not compatible with Outlook Windows and Mac clients. Google is also one of those “sources” of an otherwise generic MBOX file. If you want to download your Google data (like emails from Gmail), you can use their ‘Takeout’ feature to do so. The file format depends on the contents you are archiving. For emails, Google uses MBOX format.
But there is no way to directly use the file with Outlook, which is a big setback for the Outlook users.
