Forward All Postfix messages and deliver them

Hey All!

I have a funny sort of postfix related question.

How would I get postfix to, in addition to dropping messages into cyrus, also make a copy of every message and forward it to a particular account.

So say for example my domain is and I have user1 and user2 and an address

I send a message to, it drops it into user1 cyrus account but in addition to that forwards a copy to



btw, I have 4 gmail invites. Give me a good answer and you can have a GMail account

0) create account "bigbrother"
1) add a line: "always_bcc = bigbrother" to "/etc/postfix/ "
2) "postfix reload" to activate configuation change

and user "bigbrother" gets a copy of all incoming mails
