forward mails to a remote address - sendmail


Hello,
My site uses sendmail. Of course it is not an open relay.
I want for 3 or 4 email addresses to forward a copy of all incoming mails to an external address (ex: a copy of all emails to user@local to be forwarded to something@vodafone.de).

I've tried to do this adding an entry in aliases file

ex:
user@local: something@vodafone.de

The problem is that this works only for email generated local but not for emails sent from the outside.

What is the problem? I am sure there is something related to relaying, but I don't figure exactly what. What can I do?



Thanks,
ddaas

Try this:
Code:
\user, something@vodafone.de
in the .forward of that particular user.

Regards
