deliver <mail address> e.g. deliver "Dr Livingstone <David@somewhere.africa>"
This provides a forwarding operation. The message is sent on to the given address, exactly as happens if the address had appeared in a traditional `.forward' file. To deliver a copy of the message to your normal mailbox, your login name can be given. Once a message has been processed by the filtering mechanism, it will not be so processed again, so doing this does not cause a loop.
However, if you have a mail alias, you should not refer to it here. For example, if the mail address "L.Gulliver" is aliased to "lg103" then all references in Gulliver's `.forward' file should be to "lg103". A reference to the alias will not work for messages that are addressed to that alias, since, like `.forward' file processing, aliasing is performed only once on an address, in order to avoid looping.
