Forwarding pacbell.net address to 2 other addresses?

We have an old @pacbell.net address that I am trying to phase out. I am doing so by forwarding all the email to two other email addresses which will be staying

What is the best way to accomplish that??

This is the way I currently have it set up..

A pop3 program on our exchange server gets the email for the @pacbell.net account, sends it to an active directory user, which then forwards the email to another pop3 account, which in turn forwards to the two email addresses. I have not been able to forward to more than one smtp address from Exchange 2000, hence why it goes to the pop3 which then can forward to the two others.

The problem with this setup is that a LOT of the email going to that address gets stuck in the outgoing queue in Exchange and sits there and doesn't get sent out. I've attempted troubleshooting it but had no luck getting the emails to flow properly, so looking at other alternatives

I am NOT able to forward to anything from the @pacbell.net address directly.

Help a fella out? Thank you!
