Hi and welcome to LQ,

You didn't mention what mail server you're using (sendmail, postfix, qmail, other...), so we could help you better.
Anyway in the first two, that are the most common in linux you can define your aliases in /etc/mail/aliases (or /etc/aliases depending on distro) and run as root the command
Code:
newaliases
Regards
