In addition to what others may have told you, make certain that the
permissions on your .forward file don't allow group or other write
access.  That is, do a:
  chmod go-w .forward
Also, look in your smail logfiles to see if there's a clue as to
what's going on.

I think that the protections issue is a smail-specific feature.
