I assume from this that you're using mbox storage.

Messages in the "inbox" are indeed in /var/mail/username, but messages in
other folders (outbox, trash, etc) will usually be somewhere in the
user's home directory, although this is dependent on what kind of
IMAP server you use (which you didn't mention).
