Just a couple of ideas:

* What happens if you try to open those mbox files with say, mutt in
  order to see if the Evolution exporter is to blame?
  mutt -f mbox

* Maybe you don't need to export the mailboxes at all. For example, when
  I was using Kmail, it stored the messages in maildir format by
  default. Could it be the same for Evolution?
