    What do I need to restore to put my Email account (exchange account) back on my phone via TiBu?

    Always just re-entered my account info, but wanted to try restoring it the last time I wiped, and could not get it to work.

    I restored "Accounts" and "Account and Sync Settings 2.2" and all my Gmail accounts are present, but when I launch the Email app or look at Settings>Accounts my Exchange Email account has not been restored. (I also restored Email 2.2 (only option was Data restore).

    This was going from one CM nightly to another, so I'm restoring data from two ROMs that are virtually the same.

    Any advice appreciated - I can add the Exchange Email account back manually, but wondered why I can't restore it. What am I missing?

    Thanks!

    No TiBu experts here? :)

    When I moved from Kangerade to CM 6.0 RC1, I wiped data and cache as usual. However, once I had CM up and running, I restored "all app data and system data" using TiBu. Not only did I not have any problems, but my exchange email was up and working with no effort on my part.

    I don't know about the wisdom of restoring all data like that; but for me it worked. Did you try restoring data just for the email app?

    I did what magdelaine said, just restored the data and it worked for me so far.

    THanks...I was trying to avoid a mass restore, as I had been having some issues and wiped data to clean things up.

    I wonder why the email data isn't restored via Accounts, Accounts and Sync Data, or the email app data itself. Weird.

    Well, good to know the restore all works. :)
