How do I restore lost emails with Time Machine?

in Genius Bar edited January 2015
I would like to know how I restore lost drafts that I had on my mail program 6.6 with Time Machine.


I forgot that when you restore the mail program (was buggy) it saves all your emails except for your drafts. So now I need to find all the drafts that were deleted with my Time Machine.


Where are the drafts store prior to when I have to delete my mail program because of bugs in it?


How do I find them once I launch Time Machine.  Can't recall where they are stored in my systems folder?


Thanks for any help regarding this.

    You are supposed to launch Time Machine WITH Apple Mail open and active - then cycle through the dates to find your specific drafts/messages and choose "recover".
