Does your script produce any output to stdout and/or stderr? If not, then cron will not send an email.

comment How to truncate backup paths in rsnapshot
Perhaps rsnapshot "sanitizes" the source pathname before passing it to rsync, stripping off the extra ./. Check the log file /var/log/rsnapshot.log, it should show you exactly what rsync commands it is issuing.

Actually, yes, you can use a different include_file for each backup rule. See my second edit.

Well then, check the rsnapshot man page. The include_file parameter in rsnapshot.conf allows you specify a file name that gets passed directly to rsync via --include-from. (See my edit.)
