[SLUG] Backing up


Hi All.

I'm wanting to back up the Mail directories of all the users on my 
server, and leave all their other files for a separate backup. Can I do 
this with tar? And what would the flags be?

The Maildirs are kept in their home directories, along with all their 
working files, so I want to be able to have a backup which stores:
User1/
     Maildir/
          cur/
          new/
          tmp/
User2/
     Maildir/
          cur/
          new/
          tmp/

etc...etc...
