I need to forward emails to an email address outside my domain.

The problem I am facing is that I dont want to create a user to be able to achieve this. In some other words, if you are used to cpanel you simply create a mail forwarder to an email address.

The mailbox does not exist & simply forward

This tutorial (
nearly nailed it except that you need to have an existing users to be able to forward the mail.

How can I achieve what I am trying to do?
