If you check under the Global Settings>Internet Message Formats >Default>Properties , there is an option available called "Allow automatic forward" and this is what it does:

"Select this check box to allow messages to automatically be forwarded to another recipient under this SMTP policy. "

Hope this helps

in Exchange 2007 you can realise this with Transport Rules.
Check out the following article http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Transport-Rules-Exchange-Server-2007.html

* Assuming you are using Exchange Server 2003 and also that if user2@abc.com would be one of the default recipients for emails sent by user1@abc.com, then you could enable email forwarding using Active Directory Users and Computers console

* In ADUC, select the user properties of user2@abc.com and in the Exchange General Tab, under Delivery Options button, you could set a forwarder to the user4@abc.com mailbox.

* And if it is Exchange 2007 Server, then as mikainz quoted, you could use the Exchange Transport Rules on the Hub Transport server and accomplish this task as a piece of cake

Good Luck (^_^)
