Create a Custom Recipient with the Compuserve e-mail address and then go into the delivery options area of the individuals mailbox and specify deliver to alternate recipient.

Setup a custom recipient in Exchange that is an SMTP recipient who's address is the users CompuServe address.  Then go into the users 5.5 mailbox properties and check the box for deliver messages to another recipient.  In the recipient to deliver to box use the custom SMTP recipient you just created.

Hope this helps.

The user will be wanting to have mail redirected because they are a remote user who is hardly ever in the office and you have not provided any easyway for remote users to collect e-mail.
If you are using Ecchange 5.5 you can enable remote e-mail access through POP3, IMAP4 and SMTP. Better still they can remotely browse to e-mail if you setup Outlook Web Access. If you can enhance you server with extra features you will make it (and yourself) the centre of all that happens. Diverting mail to other servers devalues it. Also is the other e-mail server secure?
