does this mean you are excluding backing up email?

In that command.  The next two statements, though, are:

tar cvpsfj ${dest}/bkup_${y}_${x}-mail_ron.tar.bz2 home/me/Maildir

tar cvpsfj ${dest}/bkup_${y}_${x}-mail_heather.tar.bz2 \

I do that since my bkup_${y}_${x}-home.tar.bz2 gets quite large, and this makes it faster if I only have to restore some email.
