You'll probably want to figure out how to quiet down rsync, so you're only e-mailed when something goes wrong. When I first schedule a task, I will make sure it e-mails me the full details, just so I can see that it is working. I don't keep it that way for very long, because I've found that I just get into the habit of deleting the daily mail without really reading it. So if something were to go wrong, I'd probably miss it.
