Hello up there :-)

There is a debug mode, apparently... try rt-mailgate --help.  This
should get you some more diagnostics:

rt-mailgate --extended-syntax -v -d -a correspond -q sct

Also, you might want to try mda "cat > /tmp/foobar" or something like
that, and then feed that into rt-mailgate to see if it works that way.

You might also want to consider having fetchmail drop the message into
sendmail, and then just use the normal /etc/aliases entries to pass it
into RT -- at the very least, it will make troubleshooting much easier.

Best of luck :-)  -rt
