As have Russel wrote .. mbox is a type of file with certain structure
for storing emails.
open your email client, create a new folder, eg. FOR-MIREK, *copy* to
this folder desired emails
a\ Thunderbird (Mozilla)
Dive into the depths of your hard drive, find where Thunderbird and
its data are installed, and there will be two files: FOR-MIREK and
b\ MS Outlook (and similar software)
Somewhere in the menu there should be an option to save/export
emails in a given folder. While exporting, mbox file format is the
preferred outcome, but in principle I can deal with other formats too.
Send an email and attach the file FOR-MIREK.
