No, of course not.  Make the file be in Unix EOL format first, I think
that's your problem.  You can do this in Emacs, like this:

  M-x find-file-literally RET file-name RET
  C-x RET f unix RET
  C-x C-s

Then kill the buffer and repeat the "C-u M-x rmail" command above.

If that doesn't work, either, perhaps your mbox is not in the mbox
format understood by Rmail (you should have error messages in that
case).
