The names "pilot.msu.edu" and "msu.edu" are equivalent, in that they are
both system-wide mail names which are directed to "mail.msu.edu". So there
is no per-user forwarding, per se, of "[log in to unmask]" that is different
from "[log in to unmask]".
I haven't tried this specifically, but I have tried similar things, so I
believe you can do what you want through judicious use of the mail
filtering on mail.msu.edu. Go to the "mail.msu.edu" web site, login,
and go to "Filters". You will need to create two filter rules. The
first one would use the condition "Addressed to" "[log in to unmask]",
and an action of "Reject with error". The second rule would use the
condition Message is "larger than" "1" bytes, and an action of either:
"Save in" "INBOX" (or desired folder), or "Forward to" "(your external
e-mail address)". Don't forget to "Submit" each filter rule as you
create or edit it, and then do "Save all changes" when the filters are
complete and in the correct order.
Note: If you are currently forwarding your mail from mail.msu.edu to
another mail address, you will need to disable your forwarding address
under the "Preferences" screen, in order to allow the messages to pass
through the "Filters" processing.
