I am not sure the rsync --delete is what the OP intended.  rsync --delete
will delete the file on the remote location if it no longer exists in the
source location.  The OP wanted to, as I understood it, delete the file from
the source location after it was copied to the remote location.  Probably
the best bet would to be to have a script scp the files, do some sort of
verification that they made it intact, and then do an ssh [EMAIL
