About 4 hours after my reply I had a functional rsnapshot install -  
what took me so long (besides having 'real' work to do ;) was trying  
to figure out how to split up my vpopmail/domains directories so the  
rsync wouldn't take so long (because of so many files/directories).

I ended up using the 'include_conf' directive, and dynamically  
creating a file with just backup points.

It seems like a great solution, and was easy to install and setup.
