How do I send a copy of my mail to another address, but also keep it on sidehack?

This is very straightforward. Edit the ~/.qmail file as follows:

cd ; pwd

What if I already have stuff in my .qmail file?

The most common thing you might see in that file is something like:
|preline /usr/bin/procmail
This is sending all of your mail to the procmail pre-processor, usually for spam filtering and other sorting purposes. If you want to send your mail offsite (without the procmail filtering) you can simply add the forward line as above to your .qmail file, before the procmail line. Note that this will have the effect of sending any spam which might be filtered out from sidehack to your offsite address.
|preline /usr/bin/procmail
If you want to do anything fancier than that, you'll have to email to talk to see if someone can help you out.
