I'm using rt for our support queue.  It looks like
/rt/lib/rt/ui/mail/manipulate.pm includes code to check for a header that
RT adds to all outgoing email to prevent mailing loops.  When it receives
a message with this header, it dies.  I'm assuming this is causing
sendmail to email root with the following messages :

RT has recieved mail from itself. Goodnight. at

<original message, and rt correspondence deleted here>

My question is, why would RT ever be mailing itself?
