What timde delay are you referring to?
If you have set up the forwarding then this should be server side and done immediately, or queued up and done as soon as the server is able to.

Do you want to implement a delay or are you experiencing delays and want to try to get rid of them?

I have setup an auto forwarder using the same process as detailed in the related solution. However my user is experiencing an hour or more delay before his messages are sent to him... i would like them to be forwarded as close to immediate as i can get.

Chances are the delay is in the message queue for the out going mail and not in the forwarding configuration itself.
Are you using Exchange?
If so, then check your out going mail queues in the virtual SMTP configuration and see what the delay is.  There could be a problem with the domain and DNS lookup information that is causing a failover to a secondary DNS server or something that is causing the delay if it is for just this one users.

thanks i have resolved the issue by setting up the auto forward directly from the client as opposed to within AD.
