What are the commands and directory path needed to restore a user's mailbox from a Dat tape in Red Hat 7?

Can someone tell me how to restore a user's mailbox from a backup tape in Linux Red Hat 7? We are using sendmail. I know part of the command I should use (xvf /dev/st0), but I'm not sure of the file that I need to restore. Is it in /var/spool/mail/<username>?
Also, how can I view what's on the tape in sections? tar tvf /dev/st0 shows me what's on the tape but the info runs too fast. Can I go directly to the mail directory?
