Where does POP3 come into this?

You can't send mail over a POP3 connection, you can only retrieve it;
you use SMTP to *send* mail.

This is most likely a problem with the way the mail is being
retrieved, not the way it is sent.

This is really a question for your SMTP and POP3 server vendors.  No
one here will be able to answer your question unless you put the full
body of the .forward file, a message that got through, and the message
that got through to only the second mailbox, up on a WWW site somewhere
and post the URL.

Include the name and versions of your POP3 and SMTP servers, as well.
