Peter , it isnt my point.
i have given it by an example.
im using .forward to run a sms delivery .
when i .delete that .forward file mail is delivered.
when i create that .forward sms is sent , but mail doesnt delivered.

my real settings :
"|/home/test2/script"      (.forward)
/bin/email2SMS -n 50 -FS  -l /bin/.list | /usr/local/bin/sms --cfg /
home/test2/.smsrc 888728603 (script)
