Maybe you are using an imap mail account. You cannot import mbox files directly back into an imap mail account. You can directly import .eml files back into an imap mail account folder. Fuller details can be located on authors website: https://freeshell.de/~kaosmos/mboximport-en.html
You need to import mbox file into the 'Local Folders' mail account. right click on email, select 'Copy to' and choose the imap Inbox. This puts the email back on server.
I would advise you ensure you are downloading full copies into all folders.
If wanting to perform a backup of entire profile, make sure all folders are synchronised and up to date. I would suggest you use Offline mode whilst doing a large backup. Menu icon > File > Offline > download/sync now
You could set up imap account to auto synchronise folders if you select 'Offline'. Menu icon > options > Advanced > 'Network & Disc space' tab click on 'Offline..' button Download messages for offline use when going offline? select 'yes' click on OK click on OK
You can go to Offline mode by either: Menu icon > File > Offline > Work Offline OR click on the 'two blue screen icon' in the bottom Status bar on far left.
Then in Offline mode (ensures no synchronising is going on whilst copying data) you could backup the entire profile or just mbox files. See images below as guide
To go back to 'Online' mode: click on the 'two black screen icon' in the bottom Status bar on far left.
