>I have been forwarding email from my school account to my gmail account the very first day I received the 1G offer from gmail. Just recently I had the need to reply back to a particular email from my school account, but realized that no local copies of my mail were left behind at the originating server.

Basically all you have to do in addition to adding a forward address to the .forward file is to pre-prepend your local username before your forward email and delimiting optional sub-sequent email addresses with a comma. For instance, since my username is winful and my address to forward emails is firstname.lastname@example.org, my .forward file looks like the following:
It is as simple as that!
