I am attempting to view an email of my time machine backup and receive the message, "The operation could not be completed. An unexpected error occurred (error code - 10657)

I am attempting to retrieve an old email from my time machine.

Please understand I am somewhat computer illiterate. I click on time machine icon, go to backups, go to "my mac", go to applications, go to mail and get the error message
Apple Mail works with Time Machine so basically open Mail go to the folder the email should be in and go back until you see it, then select it and Restore.
