Can you specify which email programs you are using?

I Once did it using procmail. I don't remember the exact syntax,
but it consists of lines starting with a colon, and than followed by a letter. Just adding a 'c' after this letter. If you more info, i can check if i still some version of .procmail file around.

I do this with 2 entries in the forward file.
e.g. If I'm the user test and I want to forward to the user test2 at test.com the forward file has to look like
test2@test.com
test

P.S.: Pls give some points if the answer is helpful to you.
