Why not just put a .forward (containing the dest. address) file in the 
users home?

There are several ways to achieve that, if the account is aliased 
through /etc/aliases, just add another account to the recipient list:

If the account is the final destination of several adresses you might 
want to have a look at procmail.
But be sure to tell him, otherwise it might be illegal.
