You'll have to use an expect script for that, something like this one:
## Note: set crontab's $PATH to search /usr/local/bin (or wherever
you've installed rsync 3) first
spawn rsync -az --delete
wife at 192.168.0.107:~/Documents/Eudora?Folder/ /Volumes/Backups/Eudora\
set timeout -1
This is instructive in another way -- both the sender and receiver
are Intel OS X 10.5.5; note how rsync handles spaces in filenames
compared to to the filesystem itself.
