    To go to the folder that holds your OS X Mail messages:



    1. Open a new window in OS X Finder.
    2. Select Go | Go to Folder… from the menu.
      • ​You can also press Command-Shift-G.

    3. Type: ~/Library/Mail/V2
    4. Press Enter.


    You can find your folders and messages in sub-folders to the V2 folder:


    • Local mailboxes are in the Mailboxes sub-folder.
    • POP email accounts can be found in sub-folders with POP- in their name.
    • IMAP accounts' mailboxes are in sub-folder that have IMAP- in their name.


    The messages are stored in .mbox folders, one per OS X Mail email folder. Open and explore these folders to discover (and open or copy) the emails saved as .emlx files.
