Depending on your mta, there are other ways to accomplish this. With
postfix for example, one can specify multiple alias files. Let's say the
rt aliases are in /etc/rtaliases. You should now change the ownership of
/etc/rtaliases to a user that has access to rt. When an alias in
/etc/rtaliases refers to a script instead of a mailbox, that script is
executed as the owner or /etc/rtaliases.

I assume other mta's have similar ways to implement something like this.
