You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
1. Open Backup/Restore
2. Tap "New Backup"
3. Uncheck either "E-mail messages" or "Settings"
4. Check either "E-mail messages" or "Settings" (pick the one you didn't pick
in step 3)
"E-mail messages" and "Settings" can be checked/unchecked independently of each
"E-mail messages" and "Settings" are linked, and unchecking/checking one
unchecks/checks the other.
Seems like there's no way to backup just one or the other (assuming the GUI
actually corresponds correctly to whatever is going on internally), just both

Forwarding from internal ticket:
"It is because data related email are located both in gconf and $HOME. I agree
this "temporary" is annoying and confusing. It will be done in Fremantle."
Basically, it is currently required to make backing up mail work in general.
Well, no activity on the internal ticket, and the "Will be done in Fremantle"
comment is 9 months old - I don't trust this.
I assume it's still valid in Fremantle (should take 10secs to test)?
I've just tested this,myself in Fremantle and both settings are not linked
against each other anymore. Hence closing as FIXED for Fremantle.
This is a WONTFIX for Diablo as Diablo is in maintenance mode and Nokia will
only provide bugfixes for critical issues if at all.
For your interest the Mer project aims to provide a community backport of
Fremantle for N8x0 devices. See http://wiki.maemo.org/Mer for more information.
