Simple email redirect advice

I have email at work that I want to redirect to another email address. The option to use my work email client to redirect isn't available, so I have to use something of my own. I have a slackware pc w/o any X installed that I will setup at work to do this.

I know there are all kinds of ways to redirect email but I don't want to anything big and complex. I was wondering if anyone knows of a simple way to setup my slackware to get my current email and then depending on who sent it forward it back out to another address.

mutt seems to be able to bounce or forward but the process seems to be manual only? (unless I missed something read some docs on it).

Looked at procmail? "man procmailex" for examples.
