Not really, the .forward file redirects e-mail that is arriving to your account to other place, if you  check the man page of mail you can find more information, unfortunately it does not block unwanted e-mail.

   If you want to get rid of unpleasent messages in UNIX you need or to implement some scripting or to use an e-mail program more versatile. "pine" is the one that comes to my mind, I think you can use filtering.
