You aren't likely to find a reputable Free tool. Companies that produce utilities for manipulating or converting PST files have to pay a licensing fee to Microsoft. The best I could find that wasn't shareware/demoware was an command line tool that isn't even compiled: http://www.five-ten-sg.com/libpst/

PST to MBX ? what do you mean by that?

if you have a PST you can just import it to exchange with the new-mailboximportrequestand you can export a mailbox to PST by the new-mailboxexportrequest

if what you mean is OST to PST then there is no free tool I know, the one I use is http://www.nucleustechnologies.com/exchange-ost-recovery.html

There is a free Export Messages to MBOX utility. It works with PST and Outlook mailboxes.

DISCLAIMER: I recommend this tool because I'm one of the developers, so feel free to ask any further questions.

Hello Jorge Ocampo,

If you are looking for a reputable tool to perform PST to MBOX conversion, then without spending too much time you should use one of the best & advanced Outlook PST to MBOX converter tool to export email from Outlook to Thunderbird easily and safely without getting any issue. I am suggesting this tool on the behalf of my personal experience.

Note: I would advise to use Demo version of the tool first, before purchasing the licensed version.

Thanks & Regards
