For the incoming mail, '.forward' can be modified for forward to another email address.

Can I do this for outgoing messages? So that all messages I send can have a copy in another email account.

Thanks.

Yes you can do it.  In Mail utility coming with Netscape Communicator4.5 do like this
1) Click on Edit->Preferences
2) Under Category Choose "Mail and Newsgroups->Copies and Folders
3) Here you can see "When sending mail message automatically"
BCC other addresses
4)Select the BCC box and enter the address where you want to forward automatically

In case of any problem Please feel free to write.

I want to do it in Unix only because I don't want the setting only locally. I would like to know what I should to do after I telnet to the Unix Shell account. Thanks.

Sorry  it isn't possible to do it for general. They only way you can store all outgoing messages is to use the sendmail -X option. But after this all outgoing mails from every user will be stored in a file.

It is possible, using mail (mailx on Solaris), probably with elm too ;-)
Read amn mailrc.

rbr, in short I would agree.
But who restricts you to setup sendmail, even a patched one ;-)

But as I understand st just has an ordinary user account, so (s)he is limited to the MUA.

Use man sendmail. There you will see all options for sendmail. -X stands for a log-file.
