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
http://www.cyrusimap.org/mediawiki/index.php/Support for
further help, as this is the postfix mailing list, which does not
handle the mailboxes and emails setup you vaguely described.
