In sendmail, you can edit a file in the home directory
named ".forward".  This textfile contains the address(es) the incoming email is forwarded to.
Simple as that.

Use aliases:

in /etc/aliases
# Fortward  to -> this address:


john:         bob

(this will forward emails from john to bob;s account.

you will have to restart the sendmail though.
