    Hi everyone

    I sold my MBP, and restored the last TM backup to my Mac Mini. All of the files and applications came across except for:

    - Mail: I had a large number of mail boxes on my mac that have disappeared. Edit: I run gmail as my email in box, however, I created a number of additional folders that I kept emails in that were stored on my HD.
    - iCal: None of my iCal events have come across, this isn't a massive issue as I can restore from my iphone if need be.
    - Address Book: None of my contacts have been restored, same as contacts they are on my iPhone, however, still annoying.
    - Safari: None of my bookmarks have been restored.

    Should these be restored as a part of the standard TM restore??

    Yes it should.

    When you say "restore"... how did you do this? You should use the Migration Assistant to bring in your TM data to a fresh install.
