There were many MBOX-based platforms that were our go-to solution for emailing requirements a decade ago. The features and support these platforms were providing the users were truly unmatchable. However, time took a toll on these platforms such as Thunderbird, and Outlook happened. Thunderbird and other MBOX-based platforms took the hit and became obsolete.

People started to migrate from MBOX platforms to Outlook, which was more feature-rich and user friendly. Moreover, the users and businesses that were loyal to MBOX-based platforms had to let go of them as their clientele was using Microsoft Outlook.

However, migrating your mail data from one platform to another is not very easy as neither Outlook nor these MBOX-based platforms had any feature to migrate your account directly to another. This situation presents the user with two options. First is to use the manual method for converting and spend a lot of time and effort, still having the risk of losing all your data if anything goes south.
