I assume you are/were using cyrus imap server.
in this case you should have backed up/restore the cyrus mailboxes
also (and maybe sieve dirs as well), not just the emails dir.

please refer to cyrus support at for
further help, as this is the postfix mailing list, which does not
handle the mailboxes and emails setup you vaguely described.
