Hi,
You can simply move the Thunderbird emails by only performing drag and drop :
1) Drag the emails on your system from Thunderbird's interface. That emails will be in EML format.
2) Then, You can easily drop those EML files in Outlook Folder.
However, As per the above-mentioned procedure, It is quite difficult to do the same with the emails in bulk. You can follow the link to get a perfect solution:

Before approaching a Software, let's firstly convert MBOX to PST format by the manual way.
The entire procedure to convert Thunderbird MBOX emails to Outlook PST can be categorized into three steps:
Step 1: Convert MBOX files to EML
Step 2: Transfer EML to Windows Live Mail
Step 3: Export emails from Windows Live Mail to Outlook PST
If you fail in doing so then you can try EmailDoctor MBOX to PST Converter to convert MBOX files to PST format. I believe the conversion procedure could be accomplished fairly easily and with a minimum of fuss.

Hi,

If you have a large number of emails stored in your MBOX file then the safe and reliable solution is to opt for a third party application. I also faced this situation when I used a tool to convert MBOX emails to Outlook PST format and successfully transferred all my emails in countable minutes that too without losing any data.

You can also try this software.

Thanks & Regards
