    I'm not sure of any freeware solutions off hand, but I do know of Emailchemy. It should be able to convert your .eml to .mbox no problem (someone even comments on it doing so). While not free it does offer a demo(it just masks sender&title fields on converted emails) so you can at least try it.

    And just a thought.. I have no files to test with, but did you try importing it in Mail.app?


    EDIT: Ok did a little more searching and found another way as well through a ruby script via Terminal called eml2mbox. It's free and you just need Ruby installed for it to work (I do believe OS X comes with a version of it).

    olm to mbox

    I got to this post trying to finally migrate away from the last microsoft product I am using.. outlook 2011. via menu the damn thing only let's you export .olm (which is pretty much useless), but you can drag n drop to export mbox format.
