Hi, I understand that you want to know about the best third party software to convert OST to MBOX. If you search on Google you will come up with many third-party software that you can use to convert OST to MBOX. Unfortunately, most of them don't work.

Visit File tab >Options.
Go to Advanced and click the Auto Archive Settings.
Now pick the number of days for auto-archiving to run To save the archived file, pick the folder and also provide archiving options.
Press OK.
By the above steps, the mailbox items from your OST account will be transferred to the PST file based on your archiving settings.

Manual Steps to Convert PST to MBOX:-
Firstly, download Mozilla Thunderbird on your system.
Finish the installation process of it, then launch and open Thunderbird.
Visit the File Menu > Import.
Next, import the pst files you want to convert to MBOX.
At last, all the selected PST files will be converted to MBOX format.
