Hi Jay,

although MailStore Home is not a converter by design, but a complete archive solution,
you can import and export profiles and therefor achieve what you asked for.
  • start archiving, choose to archive a file -> Outlook pst file.
  • Start the profile and let MailStore Home archive the file into a folder structure under "My Archives", <A folder name created from pst>
  • Right click that new folder and choose "Export to", then choose file, Thunderbird mbox, find a destination folder suitable for your needs
  • Let MailStore Home finish the Export
Now you have an mbox file with the contents of your archive, previously archived from pst.
