    you might be able to set up your iPod from a previous backup.

    I had a jailbroken iPod and i restored. When i plugged it in again it asked if i wanted to set it up as a previous backup. This restored all my settings.

    maybe if u still have the backup file, try and restore it again and see if it gives u the dialog to set it up as a backup

    i uninstalled the mail app and then reinstalled it. then copied the Mail folder from /private/var/root/Library, and this time everything is fine. thanks for the suggestions.

    now i just gotta sort out the darned photos and wallpaper probs.
