when you say "mailbox in the cloud" - is this a hosted Exchange account? Office 365 email? something else?

If you want to import mail from a PST file into Office 365, all you need to do is create an Outlook profile that connects to Office 365, then run Outlook's Import from a file wizard (file > Open & Export >  Import/export) and make sure the import goes into the user's Office 365 inbox. This will populate the local .OST file with the email from the PST file, then sync that data to Office 365 automatically. Note that the sync process will take a pretty long time to complete.

Alternatively, there is a PST import tool in Exchange online available in the Migration tool. It's just really really really difficult to use at the moment, and involves work with Onedrive and a bunch of other stuff.

With all that said, if you are trying to move mail from an Exchange server to Office 365, it's possible to migrate the mail there directly using the mail migration features that are built into Office 365.
