Selected sendmail accounts forwarded to exchange

I have all of our clients setup with email accounts on our mail server (redhat 2.4.20-28.9smp/sendmail 8.12.8).  
I want email sent to user1 to stay as normal and email sent to user2 to be forwarded to an internal exchange server thats setup as a test.

I also need to make sure that mail comes into the same address, and goes out as the same address.

user1@domain.com -> sendmail.domain.com

user2@domain.com -> exchange.domain.com

but when they send email, the emails go out as user1@domain.com and user2@domain.com so I don't have to mess with MX records or forwarding ports on the firewall or anything.

Just put a .forward file in the user's home directory saying user2@exchange.domain.com

Then make sure users2 has their email client email address set as user2@domain.com

Another solution is to use a virtual user table.
