Yes, and I noticed a couple other mistakes too:

-e takes a parameter of a command like rsh which I don't see above.
Since you got as far as you did, I'm assuming you must have not copied
your command line accurately into your email.

Oh, if you intended to connect to a daemon you should have used the
double colon syntax in the command line above. If you're connecting to
a daemon, a "-e <command_name>" is ignored. I suspect you don't want to
use the daemon mode at all, and just let your rsync client launch the
rsync on the remote side via rsh. Then a "--exclude /archivelogs/" on
the client side command line should do what you want.
