Hello kdickins,
Thanks for reaching out to the Apple Support Community. I understand you're having some trouble with your mail permissions, and I have some information that may help.
Have a look at the articles below for some helpful troubleshooting steps, especially the first, as it details steps that should correct the permissions on your entire home folder, which would include the path detailed in the error message you're seeing.

Resolve issues caused by changing the permissions of items in your home folder
macOS Sierra: If you don’t have the permissions to open a file or folder
macOS Sierra: Set permissions for items on your Mac

If you run into any trouble, please reach out again.
​Best Regards.
