Import Single Mac Mail Folder

When you select a single mail folder from the Mac Mail account for the export process, it will save a single file in .mbox format.

Now, you need to save that exported file into a new folder so that you can import it in your Postbox account. And then follow the above steps for importing local folders to Postbox.
