QMail SMTP server, need to copy outgoing email

I am running QMail on RH9.  My client runs a business and has several employee email accounts.  He would like to have all their mail forwarded to an account he can check.  (To monitor employee converstions)  Its easy to implment this for incoming email... but I do not know how to do this for outgoing email.

I am running:
RedHat 9
Plesk 7
SMTP Server (Qmail)
IMAP / POP3 Server (Courier-IMAP)

If this is not as simple as editing a config file I would gladly pay somone to write some type of plugin, or filter that would interface with Qmail.

Thanks in advance

wow Thank you so much... I have been searching for this solution forever!!!!  :)  And it was simple!  And it works!

The solution you presented wasn't exactly what I had to do but it helped me figure it out :)


Add "&somename@remotedomain.com" to the end of .qmail

Oh crap... no nevermind... I wasn't even paying attention to what I was doing...

Thats not correct

I need a solution that forwards all mail being sent FROM name@mydomain.com to an address of my choice.  Not mail being sent TO name@mydomain.com

I already have the email address incoming@mydomain.com which confused me when editing config files.  I already accepted your answer unfortunatly but can you please help?
just go to the mydomain.com directory and creat a file called .qmail-incoming ...
and then put the entry "&someone@yourchoice.com"

no you don't understand... That forwads INCOMING email not OUTGOING email.  If somone sends an email through SMTP i want to be able to copy that email to another email address.
