I am able to forward mail that typically appears in /var/mail/root by creating /root/.forward and inputting the forwarding address. This works in conjunction with editing /etc/sysconfig/postfix and inputting our SMTP relay server there.

It appears, based on my initial testing, that the mail no longer appears in /var/mail/root - it is sent instead to the forwarding address.

Is there a way to have the mail forwarded, yet still appear in /var/mail/root?

Thank you.
