As what I had said in my previous post, I did the copying for 6 hours but I can't stop thinking how to make it easier.

Anyway, for the love of this community and to help people make life easier. Here's the solution, it is easy and easy.

cp -- "/usr/dfiles/$line/Tasks/#msgs/*.eml" "/mnt/NAS/Tasks1/$line/"
Just append double dash and that's it.

Hmm, one dash is 3 hours. Double dash is 6 hours. Hope this will help someone along the way.
