Can someone tell me how to foward my email to another account BUT still keep a copy of it in my Unix account.  When I create a .forward file, it redirects my mail, but leaves no copy of it in the account it was initally sent to.

use 2 entries in your .forward file

name@to.forward                                    <= Where to forward to
your.first.email.account                  <= your email adress you want to have a copy.

Actually the proper format should be
name@to.forward
\your

instead of
name@to.forward
\your@first.email.account

because locally it needs the alias or it will keep bouncing, by going from your@ then to name@ but a copy going to your@ which sends to name@ but copy goes to your@ and a copy to name@, etc.
