Thanks, I had finally got that figured out. Now I'm having another 
problem. When i run rsync on certail folders, I get the following error:

rsync: mkstemp 
failed: Invalid argument (22)

I'm trying to do an rsync on this mail server dir and as you can does not like the file name, because the rsync will typically 
copy over all directories and some files. Am I using the wrong options 
or something?
