[rt-users] %RT HELP

Two questions about the mail gateway (& %RT HELP)

1. If I send "%RT HELP" to a rt mail address, this actually gets logged
as a request (?), and I don't get the expected response back.....
However, after setting the new #req to 'resolved' and commenting on it-
I DO get the output found at the end of this message.....     Whats'up?

2. I expected a lot less than what seems to be possible (see below) :-)
    But what I DID expected to find, but seemingly is not available, is
a command or option to REQUEST the STATUS/OVERVIEW of (one of my)
requests, through mail.
    Sometimes users may want to retrieve the request's record to get an
overview of what is going on and has been done.
    Not possible?



Thank you for taking some action:
