Lost e-mail folders - retrievable?

I back up faithfully to SD from my iMac (lLeopard OS).

Somehow, I've lost several folders form my "mail" inbox - I've tried Time Machine but can't locate them. I'm afraid I did a SD backup BEFORE I discovered that missing folders. (they were there up to about the first week of August - now they're gone & I've done probably 2 backups).

I think since a SD backup backs up over previous backups, that means that they will no longer be on a previous (lets says August 7th or so backup?) right? They've been written over....

Hoping I'm wrong about this? If I'm not (wishful) how can I retrieve info from a previous backup (several weeks ago) and restore it???

thx
tuni

If you've done subsequent backups, Tuni, those backups reflect the state of the files at the time the backup was done. TM is what would "restore" those folders if it's been a while and you need to roll back a lot of time... that's what it's designed to do.
