Question: How do I navigate to this: /Users/nope/Library/Containers/ Application State/ ?

I am trying to restore my Mail to the same folder structure with all of their files that I see when I open Mail on my iPhone 7sPlus. Mail on my Mac (OS X High Sierra) started quitting unexpectedly and after removing some folders in an attempt to correct the problem I am now unable to recreate the same as on my phone. Can I remove Mail from my Mac and then import or otherwise reconstruct Mail from what's on the phone?

iMac, macOS High Sierra (10.13.2)

Thanks for reaching out to the Apple Support Communities. I understand you'd like to rebuild the folders in your Mac Mail app, and I have some information that may help.
