Apple Mail does not use MBOX file to store data natively or by default. This sometimes come across as a bit surprising to many, since MBOX is the file first used by Apple Mail. But ever since their 2nd edition of “Mail” client, the EMLX file has been used to store an email; one file per email. This was primarily to make index searching in Mac OS faster.

But this doesn’t mean you cannot export Apple Mail to MBOX file. Many users like to archive their data into MBOX format as a backup, mainly due to the generic nature of the file. You can use it later in many other programs, including Thunderbird.
