Hello Experts!

I have RedHat 9.0 as server and I admin it via web using Webmin 1.130.
As mail server I'm using Sendmail 8.12.8.
I have two mail accounts: A@mydomain.org and B@mydomain.org for the same user.

Using Webmin, I would like to set up the following:

Forward automatically emails from B@mydomain.org to A@mydomain.org. The user will open and use A@mydomain.org, but wishes that all arrived emails into B@mydomain.org go automatically to A@mydomain.org.
How can I set up this, please?

   Make an alias for account B to A:
http://<your RH9 IP>:10000/sendmail/list_aliases.cgi
"Create Alias" box and put "B" to "address" field and select "Email Address" in "Alias to" then put "A" in the second field.

Or you can simply edit
B:    A
And run "newaliases"
