I think you would be better off if you changed the alias on your mail
server to this:

rt-requests:	re-requests at mymachine.foo.com

And then on mymachine.foo.com you added this alias:

rt-requests:    "|/usr/local/rt/bin/rt-mailgate rt-requests correspond"

That will probably require you to put a symlink in /etc/smrsh on

If the format of RT "2" mailgate aliases are different, I'm sorry. I've
not looked at it yet.
