Sounds like you need to read the aliases(5) man page.  If you haven't
got access to /etc/mail/aliases on the machine in question, then you
can probably just set up a .forward file in your home dir on that
machine (See forward(5)). That just overrides the local delivery
agent, instead forwarding the e-mail to the address in the .forward
file.  Don't set up two machines to forward to each other or they will
spend a lot of time playing ping-pong with your e-mail, which will
eventually be bounced back to sender as undeliverable.

	Cheers,

PS You can set up that sort of either-way forwarding using
procmail(1), but it relies on using formail(1) to insert special
headers so that you can avoid forarding loops.  See the procmailex(1)
man page for an example.
