How do I send a copy of my mail to another address, but also keep it on
This is very straightforward. Edit the ~/.qmail file as follows:

what's appropriate by typing the following at a unix prompt:

What if I already have stuff in my .qmail file?
The most common thing you might see in that file is something like:
This is sending all of your mail to the procmail pre-processor, usually for
spam filtering and other sorting purposes. If you want to send your mail
offsite (without the procmail filtering) you can simply add the forward line

sidehack to your offsite address.

firstname.lastname@example.org to talk to see if someone can help you out.
