If you're using sendmail (the default mail server in FreeBSD), probably
the easiest way is to edit /etc/mail/aliases and put the following line
in the file:
account1: \account1, account3
and then run the newaliases command.
While this will not send account3 two copies of e-mail that the sender
sent to both account1 and account3, it will not check that account1 is
the only recipient. If you need to strictly check that there are no cc:
or bcc: recipients, I suspect you will have to install something more
sophisticated, such as procmail from ports.

Or, you could set up rules in Thunderbird to do the forwarding from
there. Of course, this means that mail gets forwarded only when
account1 checks for mail.
