Apple has completed the process of restoring mail service to MobileMe customers that found themselves without e-mail over the past week or so. According to Apple, one percent of members were affected by the mail problems.

The restoration of the mail service also includes historical messages, the company said in a posting to its MobileMe web site. Apple has set up temporary chat support dedicated to users that still have problems with mail.

Apple acknowledged another problem with MobileMe that began on Monday. Some users found their contact and calendar data disappeared from the iPhone and iPod touch, but not from the computer or Mobile Me.

After fixing the problem, Apple said the data for most users restored itself to the devices. The company posted instructions to reset your data If you have been affected by the bug and your data has not automatically synced to your iPhone.

With the mail service restored and the syncing bug fixed, Apple said it is moving on to improving other aspects of the MobileMe service.
