I'm trying to reduce the size of my gmail email. I decided to download all emails before a certain date using Google takeout archive feature. I ended up downloading 2 zip files and one .mbox file. My intention was to restore the emails to a new account.

Search results show any number of third pary apps to accomplish this. I have no idea if they work. I can't believe Google has an archive service with no plan for restoration.

Someone, please help me with this. Thanks in advance.
