State "E" means the job has finished and the postprocessing is being done;
this includes delivering the output back to the submitter.

The behaviour you mention indicates that the moms can't deliver the output
back; the moms use rcp (an own version, somewhere in the torque-dir) to do
this or can be configured to use scp instead (configure option --use-scp).

If you have networked filesystems, you should use the $usecp directive in

$usecp *.<your>.<domain>:/home /home

Hope that helps?
