            Archive export

            Select messages and click button 'Selected Email Archiving'. A user will receive a link to download mbox file within 5 minutes.


            The recommended way to open mbox file is to use Thunderbird. There is no native way to "import" an mbox file. But if you place the mbox file in the "Local Folders" directory, it will be indexed by Thunderbird and show up as a Folder.

            If you already have Thunderbird installed, start with step 2.

            1. Download, launch Thunderbird


            On first launch, i might say "Thunderbird would like to access your contacts", so click "Don't Allow". When it says "Use Thunderbird as he default client, uncheck "E-Mail", "Allow Spotlight to search messages", "Always perform this check when starting Thunderbird", then  click "Skip Integration".

            2. Find your Thunderbird "Local Folders" Directory

            Now you can click on "Local Folders" and then "View Settings for this account" to see where it is looking for local mail folders. Something like this:

            C:\Users\myself\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\syg8c7w1.default\Mail\Local Folders
            (You need to have allowed "Show hidden files, folders, and drives) 

            or for Mac


            3. Drop mbox into Local Folders

            Quit Thunderbird. Navigate to your "Local Folders" directory in an explorer and drag and drop your mbox file in there. You might change the name to something short, like archive-export or as appropriate.

            4. Browse mbox

            Restart Thunderbird, and you should see the archive-export folder (mbox) in your Local Folders list
