    It's not easy to find. Once you've located the date you wish to restore mail from, go to:

    Macintosh HD/Users/your user name/Library/Mail/V2/Mailboxes/

    Under the "Mailboxes" folder you should see all your mail folders such as inbox, or whatever you named them. Keep in mind that from Lion to Mavericks your user library folder is hidden by default. Open the Finder and click on the "Go" menu and at the bottom click on "Go to folder" and then your user library.
