Hmmm, I'm pretty sure this isn't the intended use, but you could set the
status to "Dead" instead of setting it to "Resolved" a second time.

What would be cool would be if RT just wouldn't re-open a resolved ticket
because of an e-mail.  But then you block out the users that are
legitimately writing back to say "No, that didn't solve my problem".  I
guess RT needs to be taught to read the mail and decide whether the user is
griping or saying thank-you.  Jesse, how's that ESP scrip coming along?  ;-)
