Well, there is no one right way to do anything like this (in fact there's probably 20 ways to do it).

The simplest way is to just put a forwarder on your main email account. If there is an account and forwarder at the same address, it will copy the email along AND deliver it to that address.

A second, more complicated way if my understanding of forwarders is mistaken and it only forwards but does not deliver (but should NOT be the case). Have all unrouted mail forwarded to forward@example.com. Create two mail forwarders for forward@example.com. One goes to your gmail account, the one goes to horder@example.com. Then, all email will be copied to the Gmail and horde@example.com email addresses.

When you want to use horde, login to horde@example.com. The only possible problem is that email sent directly to horde@example.com will not be forwarded to Gmail. Oh well.

If you figure out something better or easier, please post it here.

You can also check out http://forums.cpanel.net/ for all the info on CPanel you can shake a stick at, but it's pretty techy.
