  See the slocal man page.

  Here is brief example of a .maildelivery file that stores messages
  to babble in a folder and the system mailbox, stores mh-users in a
  folder but not the system mailbox, and puts the rest in the system
  mailbox.

    to  mh-users  | A "$MHLIB/rcvstore -create +lists/mh-users"
    cc  mh-users  | A "$MHLIB/rcvstore -create +lists/mh-users"
    to  babble    | R "$MHLIB/rcvstore -create +lists/babble"
    cc  babble    | R "$MHLIB/rcvstore -create +lists/babble"
    default -     > ? /usr/spool/mail/wohler

  Your .forward file may look like (quotes necessary):

    "| $MHLIB/slocal -user your_login"

  In some implementations, the "-user your_login" is not needed. If
  not, manually running slocal with the flag will produce an error.

  See also chapter 12 (11) in the MH book, or the URL:

    http://rand-mh.sourceforge.net/book/mh/tocs/prmaau.html

  Alternatives to slocal include deliver, procmail, and mailagent.
