As long as there is internet connectivity, customers of the cloud-based email service Gmail may view their emails from any location and on any device. As a result, a lot of people switch from desktop email programs like Apple Mail to Gmail. In this article, we've covered a few techniques with detailed instructions that will make it simple for you to import MBOX to Gmail.

Apple Mail sometimes referred to as Mac Mail or simply Mail is the standard email client for macOS and supports both POP3 and IMAP accounts. Apple Mail only works on the Mac device on which it is installed, and it only stores user mailbox data locally in MBOX format. Gmail, on the other hand, is a cloud-based email service that is accessible online.

A web browser or the Gmail app can be used on any computer or mobile device to access Gmail, which is a cloud-based email service. Users are motivated to import Apple Mail to Gmail by the benefit of having access to emails from any location and on any device.

Therefore, by using the procedures described in this essay, you can effortlessly switch from Apple Mail to Gmail.

Take a backup of your Apple Mail mailbox first, especially if you are using POP3 configuration, though, before moving forward. This is due to the possibility of email loss during the migration from Apple Mail to Gmail owing to the user or technical fault.

  1. Open Apple Mail, then choose the mailbox you wish to backup.
