It was incredible easy to make it work adding on /etc/aliases the following line:

daniel:                        [email protected]

where daniel is the account where i wanted to put the .forward file, and [email protected] is the account where i want to store forwared emails.

By some reason, wich i dont have the time to check .forward file didn't work, neither as local ser or as root. The message on maillog was:

Oct  2 10:54:16 copernico sendmail[17237]: j92EsFfN017236: forward /home/daniel/.forward: Group writable file
Oct  2 10:54:16 copernico sendmail[17237]: j92EsFfN017236: to=[email protected], delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=local, pri=31588, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent

...i just didn't burn my neurons, y used aliases and it works perfectly.
