I'd like to import a few Mbox files into Outlook (Office 365).
Seems there is no straightforward solution and one has to use 3rd party tools for that(?)
Most of them are payware.

There seems to be 1 freeware solution though.
Import MBOX to Outlook

This is freeware. However, before installing it, I'd like to know whether anybody out there has experience with this tool.
(Or have alternative free solutions).

Thank you Diane. I bought a Single Utility License.
It worked flawlessly. Converted some 15.3 GB of MBox files to 1 12GB PST file. Took an hour or so. Other tools are more expensive.
Not sure, but probably because those tools can convert multiple formats to multiple formats. I needed to convert to 1 format only.

I was too much focused on the converting issue and did not pay attention to what all was "Personal Edition" in the personal edition.
Maybe I'll consider to purchase that one later, it may be better than having all different add-ons (like duplicate email remover, Mapilab,
attachment remover, EZDetach)

Thanks again.

There can be numerous reasons to convert MBOX to MS Outlook. But yes, there are manual methods available to perform the conversion. Outlook supports PST file format to save all the data in Outlook. But however, with these manual methods, there is a risk of data loss as well due to the continuous risk of human errors. You can also use any third-party converter tool which can perform the effortless or safe conversion without any hassle. If you use the manual technique, then it is suggested to create a backup of the original file before starting the process.
I am suggesting you a blog, where you can find the complete free manual steps to perform the conversion. Read - Easy Solution to Convert MBOX to PST File Format Manually
