Either a mail alias, a .forward file, or using sieve mail filtering.  
Sieve and Postfix work very well together and there's a great module for
Squirrelmail that allows users to make their own sieve filters.

With a .forward file, you add an option to it so a loop doesn't happen -
the info for that is in the unix vacation program.
