[rt-users] rt-mailgate with external authentication.

I found a lot of problems with the NTLM plugin.  I'm using the perl
module Apache::AuthenSmb.  For mailgate and admin users I have a local
htpasswd.  Here's my relevant configuration:

If anyone notices flaws, please let me know!

AuthType Basic
# next 5 lines to use NT domain authentication
PerlAuthenHandler Apache::AuthenSmb
PerlSetVar myPDC <primary domain controller>
PerlSetVar myPDC <primary- probably don't need the redundancy ;)
PerlSetVar myBDC <secondary>
PerlSetVar myDOMAIN <domain here!>
# next 2 lines to use  htpasswd file authentication
AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/conf/htpasswd.dat
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
require valid-user
#    AllowOverride None
    AllowOverride AuthConfig
    Options Indexes ExecCGI FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

good luck!
