You will have to add the Sender as a Contact.

Once you have done this, you then create a rule:

Check msgs when they arrive
From People or Distribution list (Select the sender you saved as a contact)
Forward it to People or Distribution List (Select the sender name again)

Done

Dear apache09
hi
This is not what I want, let say it different: user "A" send a message to user "B" . User "B" forward message to user "C" for Attendance .  
User "B" wants to send a copy of forwarded message to original sender (user "A") as cc for tracking, when forwarding the message to user "C".  
I like to create rule to do this automatically always when I forward a message,  not manually.

Outlook Rules do not provide this functionality.

Hooshiara1,

If you have any additional comments please place them in this discussion.
Saves us from having to look in different places to help you.

As you cannot create this rule in Outlook.
You may be able to use a 3rd party mail tool
Here are a few from slipstick.

Otherwise, you would probably need a custom script to be written that looks at all the forwarded emails in your inbox and forwards them again to the original sender or similar
Its possible someone has had this same request and the code is already available at:
