Automatic encrypted offsite backup

I've two debian machines, one is onsite and one is offsite on a residential connection. I need to backup incrementally to this offsite server over SSH (or something just as secure) on a regular basis, this should require no manual intervention. I would however like a regular email to inform me of the status. The offsite machine isn't secured from burglary etc and therefore the backups need to be fully encrypted. The onsite machine is secure and thus can store encryption keys if need be. [more inside]

Email client not working properly? You don't say...

I created an Automator Workflow to do a daily automatic offsite backup of my documents. The only snag is that when I get my mac's Mail program to send the email to my gmail account, most of the time the message just sits in the outbox and doesn't actually send; but sometimes it starts sending right away. What gives?
