On master.debian.org (and debian.novare.com), it's a .qmail file that
controls mail delivery to your account, not a .forward file. What's your
.qmail file like on master? It should look like this if you want your mail
forwarded elsewhere:

#/home/Debian/foo/Maildir/
&me@my.other.email.address

Replace 'foo' by your userid on master and me@my... by your other email
address. If you want to have email delivered locally instead of forwarded,
just uncomment the first line and comment the second. See qmail-command(5)
for more info on .qmail files.
