Sean Kelly is *definitely* correct.  It's not the role of popa3d to do
forwarding like that, because if you think about it, popa3d only runs when a
user logs in.  Your MTA or a MUA-triggered-by-an-MTA such as the
sendmail-to-procmail setup is needed.  You don't need procmail to do it,
unless you want something special.  Sendmail intrisically handles .forward
files - but you can even do it in the sendmail configuration via aliases,
virtusertables, etc.  It all depends on whether or not you want the user to be
able to edit or remove the forwardings or not.
