A quick look at RT (rt-3.2.1) tells me that RT does not support
Microshit SQL servers.

This was gleaned from the ./configure options for rt-3.2.1 :

--with-db-type=TYPE     sort of database RT will use (default: mysql)     
                        (mysql, Pg, Oracle, Informix and SQLite are valid)

Which one of those is SQL server?
