    I am hoping one of you can tell me the location and name of the folder in which all the mail in the mailbox is stored. My wife's iMac crapped out on her and I can barely get access to the hard drive using Disk Warrior. VERY slow. I need to know where to find her last year of email. She mistakenly erased from the server recently so it isn't there. Thanks

    The default mailboxes are in
    user/Library/Mail/Mailboxes

    I've got mine configured with an IMAP gmail account, so most of mine is in a different folder within the Mail folder
    user/Library/Mail/IMAP-*****@gmail.com@imap.gmail.com where ***** is my gmail name
