OS X Server 10.6 setup email forward for mailbox to copy mail to another user

We are configuring a Mac Mini with 10.6 OS x Server installed and a user has asked that a copy of their mail be sent to another user.

ie UserA mail goes to UserA and UserB

I was hoping somebody could assist with the correct way to do this in either Workgroup Admin or through the Postfix config.

Do you have an alias table set up (i.e. /etc/postscript/aliases)?

You would just have to add

userA:               userA, UserB

run newaliases and postfix reload

Thanks nxnw,

Do I add the full address or just the username to the alias file?

for your local domain, only the username is required
