Hi all.

Daughter just restored a backup to her new iphone from itunes (computer - not cloud) and she said that all her emails have not copied across.

Does a full backup not backup individual emails?

Thanks

This is from Apple:

What does iTunes back up
iTunes will back up this information:

Camera Roll (photos, screenshots, images saved, and videos taken)
For devices without a camera, Camera Roll is called Saved Photos.
Contacts* and Contact Favorites (You should regularly sync your contacts to a computer or cloud service, such as iCloud.)
Calendar accounts and subscribed calendars
Calendar events
Safari bookmarks, cookies, history, offline data, and currently open pages
Autofill for webpages
Offline web app cache/database
Notes
Mail accounts (mail messages aren't backed up)

That's why we recommend not removing mail messages from the server unless you are absolutely sure that you have an archived copy or that you no longer need it.
