Hi, I'm about to reinstall 11.1 in 64 bit version, are there any known
problems ie. if I backup my home will I still have my emails etc when I
restore it to 64 bit 11.1?

Assuming you're using POP email, all your mail etc should be in your
home directory. Just don't format your /home partition. As always,
backups can save a lot of grief.

Already on 64 bit, all mail intact, only problem I had was I did the
backup as root and had to change all the files owners.
