I have a similar (possibly same) problem. I have local 'on my mac' email folders where I have been storing old emails and would like to upload these into my gmail account working off a mac. Any help greatly appreciated, thank you.

It worked great for me! transfered specific messages from a g-suite accout into a normal gmail account almost seamlessly. Mbox Restore didn´t worked wll so I started all over from scratch a new backup fron g-suite account and restored it into gmail account. It require time and patience to configure access to the accounts specially if you are logged in both accounts on the same (Chrome) navigator,  but in the end it worked fine.

I find it extremely disappointing that Google / Gmail lets you export in Mbox format and then doesn't give you an easy way to import that data again. This should be simple and straight forward. One shouldn't have to use third-party apps or workarounds.
